Design quality, technical innovation and a beautiful aesthetic. The attributes of brick as a material that can transform and enhance building design are the central theme of a popular webinar series from Vandersanden, now returning for a second season beginning on 2 December 2020.

Over one thousand architects, designers and specifiers registered for the company's summer series of brick webinars.
