Designing for Movement in Brickwork

RIBA approved

This seminar looks at the essential considerations that must be given to brickwork to accommodate movement- the largest contributor being expansion and contraction due to changes in temperature. How this movement is accommodated, together with materials for movement joint fillers and sealants, is discussed with illustrations of both good and bad examples.

Durability in Brickwork

RIBA approved

The presentation outlines the key design considerations and applicable criteria to maintain long-term durability and satisfactory appearance of brickwork. It looks at exposure, British Standards, correct brick selection, mortars, jointing etc, together with the necessary detailing of dpc’s, cavity trays, parapets and copings to produce durable brickwork.

Achieving Quality Brickwork

Achieving Quality Brickwork

RIBA approved

Many people within the construction team are responsible for the acceptance of brickwork and in many cases the brickwork is judged on “how it looks” and not “how it actually is”. Achieving Quality Brickwork looks in detail at the requirements of relevant Codes of Practice and their implementation in the construction of the cavity wall. Both good and bad examples of cavity walling will be shown to illustrate the need to properly supervise brickwork during construction.
