In 2010 we set up our own brickyard to ensure we could give our clients the artificial cast stone products and brick specials they needed, when they needed them.
As demand for our high quality brick specials and building components grew, we quickly expanded into larger premises. We now have a team of staff dedicated to creating and cutting an extensive range of bricks, block and artificial cast stone.
Our top of the range machinery, exceptional environmentally friendly standards, highly skilled workforce and our ability to deliver anywhere in the UK quickly and efficiently are just some of the reasons we stand head and shoulders above anyone else. But the number one reason clients come back to us time after time is that we are relentless about keeping them happy. We will do whatever it takes to fulfil your order on time, on spec and at the highest quality. We will never let you down. And that’s a promise.
Our clients include:
- large volume builders including many of the UKs leading house builders
- smaller builders and individuals in need of specific component pieces
- building merchants
Please get in touch to find out how we can help you.
We have an amazing team of people in our Brickyard, many of whom entered the brickwork business straight from school. Take Carl for example. He is Mr Brick. Bricks would be his Mastermind specialist topic.
Or Nick. He used to be a joiner but made the switch to Master of Art Stone in 2012 and hasn’t looked back. You will find Nick on site almost seven days a week, thanks to his passion for making and crafting stone. Aldis is from Latvia, managing the yard, production and distribution, while Steve is an ex-frontline soldier who now applies the same commitment to creating voussiours. See Our People to get to know our brickyard team.
We have invested in some of the latest technology to ensure we can cut large quantities of brick and stone with complete precision in a safe and environmentally friendly way.
Our water jet cutting combined with Autocad means we can create any design you require. If you can design it, we can cut it. The laser water jet machine lets us cut to 1000th of a millimetre for ultimate precision. It also ensures each product is identical, without flaws. And it cuts down on waste and dust, while laser sensors ensure the safety of our staff.
Our multi-blade saws have the capacity to cut a substantial volume of bricks. By cutting the bricks in our brickyard, we cut down on accidents on site, reduce dust pollution and provide greater precision.
Our IT systems enable our team to generate call offs for just in time manufacturing. It automatically orders and groups jobs by priority and type, allowing our team to concentrate on manufacturing, not paperwork.
Being an environmentally friendly company is hugely important to us. By using our Brickyard for cutting, we have reduced the amount of waste generated on our building sites by over 60%. We reuse any off cuts or waste wherever possible. We control dust emissions through the use of water suppression on all our machines, and we filter and recycle this water to reduce our overall consumption. Our modern fleet of delivery vehicles are fuel efficient and regularly serviced, while our deliveries are planned to maximise loads to reduce the number of journeys and mileage needed.
Our fleet of delivery vehicles, including 26 tonne and 7.5 tonne lorries, ensures we deliver your products exactly when you need them. All of your products are picked, packed and individually labelled per plot so there is no confusion on site. We can also collect your materials from your supplier on your behalf. Our entire process makes it easy, professional and glitch free. You get your products exactly when you need them, even if your project is ahead of schedule or has been delayed. We’ll work to your timeline.
All of our products are CE marked to meet the legal requirements of European Conformity standards. They are also Kitemarked, which means they have been tested and meet the British Industry Standard.
Gable Cuts, Angle Cuts & Brick Slips
Any bricks or blocks requiring precision cutting can be supplied using our high precision saws utilising clean recycled water. Gable cuts are the most common example but we also cut other internal and external angles as well as squint bricks and brick slips.
Cuts & Bonds
These are special shaped bricks or blocks that are manufactured from standard bricks, using a cut and bonded method. The cutting process involves our high precision saws and clean recycled water. Bonding involves the use of a two-part epoxy resin.
Voussoir Heads & Brick Arches
Voussoir heads & cills are produced from brick slips cut using waterjet technology. These brick effect products can then be pointed pre-delivery or post installation.
