Easy Guides for Housing

Modern Masonry has created a series of Easy Guides to offer practical guidance on masonry construction. The guidance is a practical introduction to the characteristics, performance benefits and latest design guidance for concrete blocks in construction. 

Tom De Saulles, Sustainability Senior Manager from The Concrete Centre, has authored these guides. The CBA, APA and Modern Masonry Technical group have also all contributed in their development.

The guides form part of the broader, Better Built in Blockwork campaign by Modern Masonry. The aims of this campaign are to share best practice for the design and construction of high performance homes.
