Different materials for wall construction, such as brick masonry, timber or steel, glass, concrete or other materials may be selected depending on the client's needs, design of the structure, and local planning rules and regulations.

Walls may be constructed of:

  1. Concrete or clay brick masonry
  2. Timber or steel framed
  3. Glass (glazing in a timber, steel or aluminium frame)
  4. Concrete panel cast on site or precast in a factory
  5. Mud brick (generally in a structure with timber posts)

Framed buildings can be lined with plasterboard, fibre cement sheet, metal or timber boarding.
