Working together for better brickwork

  • Comment
UPDATE

Skills shortages in the construction industry are not confined to bricklaying. However, the BDA puts great emphasis on improving the supply, skill and productivity of bricklayers.

'People for Better Brickwork', a strategic study commissioned by the BDA, makes recommendations for a concerted strategy to improve supplies of well-trained bricklayers, but depends on the goodwill and commitment of groups within the construction industry. The association has therefore invited their participation in The Better Brickwork Alliance which has now been launched.

Its membership including senior representatives from across the construction industry - housebuilders, main contractors and brickwork subcontractors, CITB, the Guild of Bricklayers, colleges where bricklaying is taught, and brickmakers. The Alliance, whose first tasks are to evaluate the wide range of proposals in the report, is headed by Sir Idris Pearce, master elect of the Worshipful Company of Tylers and Bricklayers.
