The manufacturing process

construction bricks for developers

We model our clay into rectangular moulds, lightly dusted with sand. They remove and save excess material for the next piece. Then, they use a wooden block to press the remaining clay into the mold, forming the correct shape.Subsequently, air-drying helps these stacks of formative ‘green’ bricks develop their individual quirks.

Once they reach a low enough moisture content, the bricks head into the kiln. Temperatures over 1,000°C bake the clay solid and bring out the different hues in each brick. Once cooled, their colour depends on the heat of the oven and the mineral compounds present in the raw materials. Yellow bricks have a higher lime content, while concentrations of iron gather in pink bricks.

How are we sustainable?

Construction waste makes up most of the recyclates used in our bricks. From broken glass to sand, and slabs of concrete to broken brickwork, all are natural products which can be reused again and again with brick sustainability at the centre of what we do. We also recycle any of our own products which become damaged during manufacture, or which fail to meet our strict quality guidelines. Seconds are all crushed, before being fed back into the closed loop system to create brand new bricks.
