The Brick Development Association (BDA) which represents the majority of the United Kingdom and Ireland’s clay brick and paver industries has now published the Industry’s sustainability credentials in a leaflet entitled; “Brick: Building A Sustainable Resource For The Future”.
The brochure provides crucial information for everyone involved in the specification of brick and masonry walling systems, including architects, engineers, planners, specifiers, developers, builders and property developers. All the facts laid down in it are fully supported by research and independent assessments.
Katherina Lewis, Marketing Manager for the BDA says: “We’re keen to show the industry why brick is best and why it ticks all the boxes as a natural building material. The BDA continues to invest heavily in promoting the benefits of brick and by publishing our sustainability credentials in this way helps to support the brick industry by dispelling any misconceptions about using brick, including cost, durability and environmental issues”.
The crucial additional element in any sustainability calculations is how much it costs to look after a product once it has become part of a building
