As part of their everyday work bricklayers must be able to interpret technical documents, understand the properties of various mortars/building materials, and understand the basics of health and safety on site. Brickwork Level 1 is in full colour, and has been tailored to match Level 1 of both the Construction Alliance Awards Diplomas in Bricklaying and the Trowel Occupations NVQs. Written by Malcolm Thorpe, who acted as a CITB adviser and was involved in the draughting of the Intermediate Construction Award syllabus (bricklaying route), Brickwork Level 1 matches the latest industry-based requirements and technical developments in the field, including recent changes to the Building Regulations. This text is an essential reference for qualified bricklayers and other professionals working in the construction industry, as well as NVQ students wishing to embark on a career in bricklaying.

This series of books offers an in depth guide to all aspects of brickwork and bricklaying practice. Gerard Lynch, author of the guide to "Guaged Brickwork", has put together these comprehensive and instructive volumes, linking past knowledge and practices with modern skills and materials, so that both can be fully examined and understood. At a time when the conservation and restoration of old buildings demand a more sympathetic handling, such a work should be a useful addition to the existing literature, and an essential source of reference for all those involved in the construction and repair of brick buildings. The second of six volumes which offer an in-depth guide to all aspects of brickwork and bricklaying practice, this volume examines the elements of building construction in brick. The text covers both the contemporary and traditional aspects of substructure brickwork. Chapter one studies the setting out of a small building, and then progresses to foundations, examining the historical, as well as current practices, along with information on modern concrete production. The following six chapters cover both the contemporary and traditional aspects of substructure brickwork, basements, sleeper walls, damp proof courses, cavity walling, and jointing and pointing. The volume concludes with useful advice on achieving controlled and efficient bricklaying.

Robert Scott Burn wrote this book in 1871 at a time of great developments in science, industry and exploration, and when materials for engineering and building were constantly being improved and replaced. It offers, therefore, a useful coverage of both traditional techniques and materials such as stone, brick and pise, but also examines the developments in the use of cement for wall covering as well as cement blocks to be used as artificial stone. This reprint of the original work contains over 400 pages of text dealing with materials, practical construction techniques, masonry and brickwork, principles of design, drawing, plastering and wall decoration, as well as many other aspects of construction. The 160 plates which accompany the text include a large number of drawings of different parts of buildings, including: window, door and wall details in various styles; arches; staircases; consoles and brackets in stone and terracotta; hollow and ornamental brickwork and designs of shop fronts.
