Brick is a natural product, durable, breathable, and recyclable.  But let’s be honest, brick is only sustainable if the building is still around in 500 years and making the space it inhabits better.  The embodied energy due to all that gas used to burn bricks in a kiln at 1000c needs offsetting by the lifecycle.  That’s why Creative Brick Solutions work with clients early in the design process with a focus on quality and the best solutions for the project.  We need to shout about this more as too often poor alternatives are pushed at the last minute to save a few hundred pounds.  If we are going to use a product that uses a finite natural resource in its manufacturing process let’s, make it the best brick possible and use it in a way that will benefit the space for generations to come.
