You can search on the Building Component Library (Under "Components") to see if you can find the Construction you are looking for, or some Materials that you can use to create your Construction in the OS App. Otherwise you can add your own materials in the OS App, by searching online for their properties and entering them manually.

You can check out the Tutorial for "Construction" here.
