Default stud work for plasterboard for the ceiling

I am planning on fitting 12.5 plasterboard to the ceiling joists that are already in the garage (new build).

My question is where should i fit the extra studs ? Is it every 400 like the stud walls ?

Thanks

If the spacings are 600mm, then 12.5 is the right option, 400mm then you can use 9.5mm
Hope this helps.

Put 15mm boards up and you don't need any extra studwork.

What's the difference with joist spacings? Is it to stop any flex?

12.5mm boards= 400mm centers
15mm boards= 600mm centers

12.5 will sag on 600 center plus ceilings should only be done in 15mm gypsum standard

yer u can providing u nog it out at 400 centers! the time and cost of doing that if it isnt already done far out ways the cost of using 15mm so its pointless. no ceiling in my house or any house we working would ever get done in 12.5 board
