My customer needs furring stips placed on concrete block walls. There are offices on the other side of the wall. What method of attachment would be recommended that would be both quiet to install and secure.
Sheetrock would be hung on the furring.

Thank you, Jay

no, you don't need treated above about 2 feet above grade. If you don't like Hilti, use screws and plugs. go for the joints, preferably the head joints.

Didn't see you there.
That guy (cleve) was just p*ssing me off!
Running all over digging uo 2 year old posts.
If he'd responded, I would have posted links
to the pix of his epoxy grout jobs.
Which I thought was what was burning a hole in his shorts.
