Vandersanden UK has launched a new webinar that aims to help architects unlock the potential of brick in building design. 

'The Brick: Special techniques and innovations' starts on Wednesday 5 August and continues through the month with a variety of themes on Webinar Wednesdays every week. 

Innovative design and manufacturing techniques are transforming the creative possibilities of brick. Architects now have a wider choice of colours, textures and finishes, enabling them to deliver statement buildings that excite clients. 

Hosted by Vandersanden UK national specification manager Mathew Davies, the webinar will cover the technical aspects of brick production and the brick types available, including handform, water-struck, wire-cut and brick slips.

Mathew will consider the key manufacturing processes and methods used to achieve a wide range of colours, textures and creative finishes. He will also look at the manufacturing techniques unique to Vandersanden that allow architects to take exciting and innovative approaches to designing with brick.
