Brickwork Masterclasses, a Home Building Skills Partnership Initiative created with the Association of Brickwork Contractors (ABC) and CITB, have been relaunched and are available to book now. The sessions are delivered by NHBC and are designed to provide practical skills and knowledge on the most common brickwork issues found by inspection teams.
Masterclass sessions are available across the UK and can be delivered on or near a site provided that a suitable room is available to seat attendees, such as a large site office, canteen or another venue close to the site. Due to Covid restrictions, a standard sized site cabin can accommodate a maximum of 8 delegates plus trainer. However, if home builders or supply chain organisations are able to provide a larger venue this number could be increased in line with the 1 metre spacing guidance.
The content has been tailored to cover the following key areas:
- Cavity wall construction
- Cavity insulation
- DPCs and cavity trays
- Cavity barriers
- Timber frame
- Sound insulation
The course itself is fully funded but available for a limited time only so book now to avoid disappointment.
