Project description

Kafften Ltd was selected to work on this complex brickwork project.

Draycott House resides in a Conservation Area. This project had the added challenge of being located in a busy residential and retail environment requiring careful planning and traffic management to carry out the construction in a progressive and safe manner.

Using our in house tradesmen Kafften performed all the new build brickwork and ties to this project. The pattern and craftsmanship was intricate.

The bonding for the project was specified as Flemish bond with snapped headers. In fact the bonding was varied requiring a complex bonding solution during the course of brickwork construction.

The client instructed Kafften to cut the belly out of the bricks which were protruding. A brick cutter was in operation full time cutting all bricks to enable the 7mm bed joint gauge to be achieved.

The imperial brick did not course with the inner block work wall and required Ancon channels.
