This course focuses on the common defects found in masonry construction, where they commonly appear, and how they can be avoided.
Delivered in-person by your LABC Warranty trainer, learners will be equipped with knowledge on the common types of masonry construction, and will be able to recognise the main problematic areas during construction.
Particular focus is paid to:
Cavity widths and trays
Residual cavities, and why we need them
Movement with different types of brick, like clay versus concrete
Closing of cavities for fire safety
Trainers will also guide attendees through the typical standards to be met when using masonry, and how to align those standards with the guidance in the LABC Warranty Technical Manual, and the best practice that avoids defects, disputes, and claims.
This course is exclusively delivered in-person and on site.
Anyone involved in brickwork
It is recommended that any attendees have a prior knowledge of construction.
