Construction Specialist Pathway 7: Interior Systems (Dry Lining)

Programme Overview:

Dry liners build the internal walls in houses, offices and shops, using plasterboard panels. They might also install removable wall partitions, suspended ceilings and raised flooring. If you want a practical job in construction, and you could read technical diagrams, this job could suit you well.

Dry lining methods are used to hide wiring or pipes, improve a room’s acoustics and provide a cavity space for insulation or to smooth out uneven walls during renovation work. This role could be combined with traditional plastering or other types of work, for example sectioning off areas in open-plan offices.

Typical responsibilities include:

  • Measure and cut plasterboard to the right sizes and angles
  • Fix the panels to timber or metal frames (or ceiling joists) using special studs
  • Cut panels to fit around doorways and create openings for windows.
  • Sealing joints using filler or adhesive
  • Taping over the seal either by hand or with a taping machine
  • Applying a thin layer of plaster over the tape (skimming)
  • Sanding down the area ready for painting and decorating.
