Oxford Islamic Centre
More than two and a half million class B engineering bricks and 205,000 face bricks are being used in the traditional-method building of a new Islamic centre in Oxford.
Rosedale Brickwork managing director Lee Mackin explains. “No concrete has been used, not even in the arches, and the structure is totally held up by the brickwork.”
Six 35 tonne Remix silos contain between them class one mortar, class three mortar and class three yellow coloured mortar.
Mr Mackin said: “We gave up batching on site a long while ago because we go for high-quality commercial work. Our quality control systems are stringent and you cannot guarantee the quality if you try to batch on site.”
