An extension to a school in Preston required 20,000 bricks to complete. The brick that the main school was built out of was still manufactured by Forterra (formerly Hanson brick) but was on 22wks availability.
This availability was unacceptable to the timescale that the contractor and client had to work to, an alternative solution had to be found that would enable brickwork to get started on site straight away and the brick had to match!
Extension Match provided the solution.
We supplied a very close buff brick to site straight away so brick laying could commence. This brick was a very close buff colour and texture to the brick that was being matched to. It was also a budget facing brick that provided a significant cost saving.
Once all the brickwork was completed on site Extension match attended site and in only 3 days colour matched the brick to match the original perfectly, providing the required seamless brick match.
The contractor had to supply the client and the local planning authority a site sample panel prior to commencement of brick laying - we were able to send a 60 brick sample and attend site to colour treat the area prior to bricks being laid. The panel being approved by the client and local planning straight away.
