Vandersanden Launches ‘The Specifiers Compendium’

  • 6 Sep 2022

Brick manufacturer Vandersanden has launched a new digital brochure: ‘Sustainably Attractive Facades: The Specifiers Compendium’. The specially curated brochure has been designed to both inspire and inform architects about the variety of bricks that Vandersanden offers and their potential to elevate any architectural project.

Mathew Davies, National Specification Manager Vandersanden UK, comments: “We wanted to create an indispensable reference tool for architects to deliver not only essential information about the numerous brick finishes and styles that Vandersanden offers, but to share inspiration from some of the outstanding projects that feature our bricks.

“The brochure offers a comprehensive guide to all our brick shapes, sizes and colourways. We’re confident we have a product that’s suitable for all types of facades and every architect’s vision.”

Specifier Collections

The guide offers a curated preview of Vandersanden’s wide range of solutions for specifiers, offering insights into the extensive choice of brick types; from hand-formed to wirecut bricks and beyond. Architects will also be able to learn more about the inspiring colour range of bricks available, including bright whites, contemporary greys, bold blacks, rustic reds, soft buffs/yellows and creative pastels. 


Project Inspiration

The Specifiers Compendium provides architects with inspiration from an impressive range of projects that have featured Vandersanden’s bricks, in all colours and textures. Specifiers can learn from the architects of the award-winning tranquil Spa at South Lodge or the outstanding City Law School, which seamlessly combines both traditional and contemporary architecture. Whether the project requires bricks of a more rich and rustic aesthetic, or a crisp and contemporary finish, Vandersanden can bring to life any architect’s creative vision.

Focus on Sustainability

The Specifiers Compendium also offers insights into Vandersanden’s commitment to sustainability and its drive to develop sustainable products, manufacturing processes and services which have a limited impact on the environment and ecosystem. The company shares an overview of its efforts and results in terms of sustainability and the past year’s performance shows that Vandersanden is on the right track towards CO2-neutrality by 2050.

On-going Innovation & Development

Vandersanden is a company that continually innovates and this new guide aims to share some of the latest innovations that the company has launched.

These include the new Texture Generator, an online tool which enables architects, property developers and other specifiers, to design a facade by combining, different types of bricks and brick slips, colours, laying patterns and joint thicknesses. In total, the texture generator allows more than 1.1 million combinations to be created and compared.

The Specifiers Compendium also includes a summary of Vandersanden’s engaging and informative CPD webinars. The sessions are part of Vandersanden’s portfolio of learning and development tools, aimed at architects and specifiers, to help build their knowledge base and keep them updated on new techniques and innovations in brick manufacturing.

Created by a team of Vandersanden’s expert professionals, the guide offers an invaluable digital tool to assist specifiers throughout the whole architectural process.
