WHAT ARE IMPERIAL BRICKS?

Metric bricks are a little smaller than the old imperial one. New bricks can be bonded into old brickwork by slightly increasing the mortar bed joint.

There are a variety of sizes available and they differ from country to country. Brick sizes have remained fairly constant over the years although, in the UK, the depth used to be less (about 2 ins/51mm) whereas modern bricks are about 2.5 ins./64mm.

WHY CHOOSE US?

PRECONSTRUCTION SERVICES

Every construction is unique in scope, but process is systemically applied to each construction project.

We seek to get involved early in the design phase so that we can manage the project more efficiently, provide effective building solutions, and identify challenges early on to mitigate design changes after construction commencement.

This involves detailed pre-construction planning crucial to successful construction and on-time delivery, and allows the client and team a clear pathway to the  construction phase, and through to completion.
