Brick has been one of the principal building materials in Britain for centuries.
The purpose of this document is to provide procurement best-practice guidance for project managers, developers, contractors, builders and clients.
Implementing this best-practice will help ensure that the supply of bricks does not impact your construction programme. It will also help minimise confusion and make for a more streamlined procurement process.
Primarily, this document's audience is those responsible for specification and the purchasing of bricks, such as surveyors, buyers, designers and self-builders.
The structure of this guide follows the sequence common in the majority of UK construction projects.
The guidance consists of considerations to be raised with the brick manufacturer or suppliers at certain milestones in the project life cycle. Where the designer is not involved in procurement, the advice is intended as a reminder of what information the developer/builder will require.Download
