This series of books offers an in depth guide to all aspects of brickwork and bricklaying practice. Gerard Lynch, author of the guide to "Guaged Brickwork", has put together these comprehensive and instructive volumes, linking past knowledge and practices with modern skills and materials, so that both can be fully examined and understood. At a time when the conservation and restoration of old buildings demand a more sympathetic handling, such a work should be a useful addition to the existing literature, and an essential source of reference for all those involved in the construction and repair of brick buildings. The second of six volumes which offer an in-depth guide to all aspects of brickwork and bricklaying practice, this volume examines the elements of building construction in brick. The text covers both the contemporary and traditional aspects of substructure brickwork. Chapter one studies the setting out of a small building, and then progresses to foundations, examining the historical, as well as current practices, along with information on modern concrete production. The following six chapters cover both the contemporary and traditional aspects of substructure brickwork, basements, sleeper walls, damp proof courses, cavity walling, and jointing and pointing. The volume concludes with useful advice on achieving controlled and efficient bricklaying.
