Revolutionising Restoration is a new, RIBA-approved CPD, launched by Imperial Bricks to aid building professionals in the specification of handmade bricks for renovation, extension and new build projects.

The seminar, which is part of the RIBA Core Curriculum, reviews the impact of traditional brick making methods and regional brick variations across the UK. 

The CPD provides specifiers with an in-depth knowledge of how brick manufacturing methods – such as handmade, wirecut and pressed – affect the durability of bricks, and their suitability for different building types and applications.

The hour-long event covers the history of brickmaking and helps delegates recognise regional variations in brick size, colour and texture and learn how to specify the correct brick types and sizes. Other topics covered include brickwork bonds, brick weathering, overcoming common issues and sustainability.
