BRICK CALCULATOR

The clay bricks used in established masonry builds represent a cost equal to less than 2% of the average UK property selling price. Even such a relatively low cost however, does not mean we are complacent. Responsible procurement contributes to a healthy supply chain and buoyant construction sector.
