Sub-contracted for bricklaying and block paving work in Sheffield City Center

Commenced construction on a radius wall in Sheffield Town centre July 2009. The boundary wall completed was approximately 18 metres long. For strength, and because of the length was built as two 100mm walls tied together by stainless tie irons. The bond of the wall was a standard half brick bond with raked out joints. The finished wall was topped off with a brick on edge and concrete padstone on either end to eliminate vandalism. During construction, metre markers are inscribed on the wall to follow so no flats appear in the wall but a steady continuous curve.
