A presentation which offers an insight into the different types and finishes of Walling and Cast Stone products available. It offers guidance on the successful specification of each product and gives detailed advice on the breadth of options available and their key design features, while examining the most important aspects of detailing in conjunction with brick and walling stone.
A presentation which covers all the most vital aspects of designing with Architectural Masonry; from the importance of modular design and movement control, to structural performance, thermal insulation, sound reduction, fire resistance and much more.
This presentation is designed to provide information on the innovative products that Ibstock has introduced, providing details not only on what benefits the innovations can offer specifiers and their clients, but also how they can be used in work.
Innovations included are Fireborn (large format bricks), glazed bricks, Tilebrick, rainscreens, preassembled, Linear and precast brickwork and more.
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.
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.
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.
This presentation has been designed to provide information on the basic principles of brickwork for those new to specifying brickwork, or for those requiring a “back to basics” refresher. The presentation addresses different techniques of manufacturing bricks to provide a variety of finishes and appearances. Durability, mortar and the importance of setting out to brick dimensions are covered, along with an overview of DPC’s, basic principles of movement and also the use of special shapes. It concludes with a look at some of the innovations in clay that Ibstock have to offer.
Ibstock has 19 factories nationwide and the tour, which can be held at any factory, follows the manufacturing process from start to finish. Within the group a variety of processes can be seen ranging from traditional hand-making and clamp firing through to extruding bricks and the latest tunnel kilns.
This seminar looks at the benefits of clay paving and where and when it can be used. It will help you to understand the following topics:
Ancient and modern iconic structures, exploring early brick structures, to the present day.
This seminar aims to give architects and designers an understanding of bricks, their history and the various types available. Also considerations when specifying bricks that affect the appearance of the build and the importance of movement joints. The seminar covers:
