Bricklayers build the external fabric of buildings in bricks or concrete blocks, which will be load bearing or simply a decorative weatherproof cladding to steel or concrete framed buildings.
Bricklayers lay bricks, pre-cut stone, concrete blocks and other types of building blocks in mortar to construct and repair walls, foundations, partitions, arches and other structures, work at heights or in tunnels and shafts. Bricklaying is one of the most varied construction trades and bricklayers could work on a number of projects from creating a single conservatory building, to building brand new homes or large commercial developments.
This competition has been designed to reflect the role of a bricklayer and the standards that are expected within the construction industry.
