The Masonry Sector Group has published a Concrete Masonry - Site Practice and Workmanship Guide to help develop competency levels across the masonry trades.

“This Guide is intended for use by all members of the building team, including site supervisors and brick and block layers,” says Concrete NZ architect and Masonry Sector Group convenor Ralf Kessel.

The Concrete Masonry - Site Practice and Workmanship Guide:

  • covers the key points for preparing and carrying out masonry work onsite,
  • includes extracts from relevant Standards and Codes of Practice for easy reference; and
  • provides a handy action checklist.  

“High levels of workmanship and site practice should result in durable brick and blockwork that has a consistent appearance and needs little or no maintenance during its design life,” says Ralf.

“Units, mortar, grout, rebar and other ancillary components such as beams and columns must also be designed and specified in accordance with the New Zealand Building Code and relevant Standards.”
