Architects voice alarm over ‘worsening’ UK brick shortage


Nothing new - seen this at least 4 times in the last 30 years - Just make sure that the lightweight blockwork is not too fresh from the factory and has been allowed to cure otherwise you end up with lots of cracking with resultant water ingress problems and breaches in fire compartmentalisation.
