Alternative Uses for Bricks in Structural Work: Moving Beyond Thin Brick

Webinar Recording

Hosted by Dr Geoff Edgell, Director and Principal Construction Consultant at Lucideon, the webinar looks at alternative uses for bricks in structural work.

While much of the focus at the moment in the US is on supplying thin brick to act as a veneer to buildings, Geoff asserts that a wider approach and perspective is needed in order to ensure the sustainability of the brick industry.

The webinar covers:

  • Thin bricks - is that all there is?
  • How adapting pioneering work in the 1980s on the use of bricks in drainage applications, acoustic situations and single leaf construction could lead to new opportunities.
  • The approach to the introduction of highly perforated clay blocks to the UK market.
