A frequent subject of inquiry to the BDA Technical Information Service is the use of reclaimed bricks. These have an undoubted appeal, particularly where a mature and weathered appearance is sought, though specifiers may not be aware that new bricks can often achieve the desired appearance at lower cost, while having the advantages of known provenance, established technical performance and assured availability.

Architect Alison Norcross of the BDA Technical Information Service has prepared some guidance on the subject and her document explores the aesthetic, technical and economic issues.

It can be downloaded directly from the BDA website at www.brick.org.uk.
