Concrete masonry is a staple material of the construction industry; a silent workhorse that encompasses reinforced concrete block and concrete block veneer, along with concrete block paving and flagstone paving for pedestrian walkways.
Concrete masonry offers structural and architectural advantages in a single material and is recognised as a major contributor to a sustainable built environment.
The New Zealand Concrete Masonry Manual, which was created in the late 1970s as a guide to the design and construction of concrete masonry, has been updated and is available in sections for free download as required.
