IG Masonry Support has provided a combination of straight and curved brick slip lintels and welded masonry support for the £16.6 million development of Stonebridge Park in London.

 
An entirely new neighbourhood has been created, producing 117 new homes in the area, with a complex corbelled brick feature entrance being the masterpiece on this project.
 
Modelled in three different types of accommodation, each apartment building exhibits distinct and diverse characteristics.
 
IG Masonry Support provided a combination of straight and curved brick slip lintels and welded masonry support to suit each structure and provide soffit reveals for each opening. A complex corbelled brick feature entrance was the overall highlight of the task.

 The Mews Terrace, Villa Apartments and Rotunda building required a range of prefabricated components but it was the latter of the trio that posed the biggest challenge.
 
The ground floor main entrance to the Rotunda required a 4.8m wide, 3.6m tall, 2m deep corbelled brick feature.
 
Constructing the corbelled brick detail required a welded brick slip masonry support solution. Produced off-site and delivered in 38 individual brick slip units, IG ensured the brick feature was made up of manageable components to ensure optimum adjustability.
 
Along with this, an IG engineer attended the site prior to and during the installation, ensuring the prefabricated system was installed effectively.
 
“IG Masonry Support’s technical expertise allowed us to create a single storey entrance appropriate to the scale of the 9 storey Rotunda,” said Kevin Goh, of architects Cullinan Studio.
