    Description

    Understanding the processes involved in the manufacture of brick is important to be informed of differences between competing materials.   Often, the younger architectural community has not been exposed to brick materials and brick production.  The brick manufacturing process is presented on-site to inform participants of current practices in manufacture. Emphasis is placed on regulatory issues common to manufacturers, energy conserving processes, quality control, sustainability, and new product development.

    • Participants will become familiar with the demands on manufacturers related to mining, material resources, and land reclamation in the production of new products in applying requirements of governing code and regulatory agencies.

    • Participants will understand and issues related to embodied energy of new product manufacturing and be able to apply these in new project sustainable design determinations.

    • Participants will gain understanding of manufacturing issues in processing and handling material for new projects by applying demands of users.

    • Participants will gain an understanding of sustainability issues of brick manufacturing of new products through the use of unit sizes to reduce materials and construction waste by applying current sustainability design requirements.
