Imperial Bricks‘ new CPD is sure to help architects, specifiers and developers gain a greater understanding of brick matching techniques.
This includes recognising brick types, brick blending, colour correction and the use of brick slips for interiors and external facades.
The new, RIBA-approved CPD, entitled ‘Innovative Brick Match Solutions: A Practical Guide to Achieving the Best Brick Match’ follows the incredible success of Imperial Bricks’ ‘Revolutionising Restoration’ seminar, with both CPDs part of the RIBA Core Curriculum.
Ruth Hughes, Specification Manager at Imperial Bricks commented: “Many people are yet to learn of the range of handmade, wirecut and pressed bricks available, and which are suitable for buildings of different periods and character.
“Using the right regional variation, or a particular reclamation finish, for example, can have a significant impact in terms of kerb appeal and ultimately the value of a property.
“Our new CPD will open up new opportunities to those who have previously been restricted in their brick choices for extending or renovating their current properties or building new houses in conservation areas.”
Imperial Bricks be in attendance at the RIBA CPD Roadshows in 2018, at Leeds, London, Bristol and Birmingham.
