Dry lining gallow brackets

We have had our chimney breast removed in the kitchen and the builders have installed gallow brackets and a steel plate for support. I am struggling to see how i can dry line - box out the brackets - does anyone have any advice?

I would apply red ox paint plus two coats off fire paint then you will be fine to over board brackets and hind them the best you can thanks chris

We always put two layers of plasterboard over any structural steelwork to comply with building regs, this can fixed to a timber frame round brackets or can be stuck with foams plasterboard adhesive ( Dow instastick) or dot and dab drywall compound directly to the steel
