The principal aim of this book is to improve the survey and assessment of traditionally constructed brickwork. It aims to ensure that those who have a cause to survey and assess buildings constructed of traditional (pre-1919) brickwork have a well-developed, clear methodology for undertaking effective, comprehensive surveys. The book helps readers gain the proper level of knowledge, expertise and skill to understand these buildings correctly; to recognise not just defects within the brickwork itself, but also, crucially, the cause of these defects. Experienced author, Moses Jenkins, presents a clear and concise methodology for the survey of brickwork in existing buildings with coverage including:











identifying repair needs







understanding the cause of decay within brickwork







ascertaining the age and significance of traditionally constructed brickwork







and identifying significant technical and decorative features.








Despite the extensive use of traditionally constructed brick worldwide, the knowledge and expertise to survey and assess buildings of this type has not, to date, been laid out in a concise way which focusses specifically on brickwork. This book addresses this deficiency and provides an invaluable resource to all those who survey and assess buildings which are constructed of brickwork. This includes building professionals such as architects, surveyors, engineers and those working in building conservation; but also, construction managers and students studying built environment disciplines.
