New CPD on brick matching for renovation and new build

Imperial Bricks has introduced a new CPD to guide architects, specifiers and developers to gain a better understanding of brick matching techniques, including recognising brick types, brick blending, colour correction and the use of brick slips for interiors and external facades.

The new, RIBA-approved CPD is titled: Innovative Brick Match Solutions: A Practical Guide to Achieving the Best Brick Match and follows the phenomenal success of Imperial Brick’s Revolutionising Restoration seminar. Both CPDs are part of the RIBA Core Curriculum.

Ruth Hughes, Specification Manager at Imperial Bricks comments:

“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 will also be attending the RIBA CPD Roadshows throughout 2018 in Leeds, London, Bristol and Birmingham.
