REUSSIR LTD was selected to carry out this very difficult project by Laing O`Rourke, due to our history of working well together over the previous 12 years.The project was to build many student accommodation blocks, to the Bath campus on top of Claverton Down Hill in the centre of Bath. The value of the Brickwork package was approx. £1 Million Full Supply & Fix.  

The Architect set a real challenge to the Bricklayers by selecting an Ibstock Fireborn Freedom Natural cream face brick, with sizes of 440mm long by 102mm wide and only 50mm high, with a traditional 10mm mortar bed joint. http://www.ibstock.com/fireborn-sizes.asp

 

It became imperative that each Brick was laid correctly and to an exact level.

Our tradesmen did an exceptional job, and the finished buildings shall remain for many years as an example of brickwork built to non-traditional brick sizes.

We`d like to thank all the Laing O`Rourke project team, but in particular Scott Palmer and Peter Sharpe for their understanding of how difficult this project was to get built.
