Dense concrete block is suitable for cavity or solid wall constructions, internal load bearing walls and beam and block flooring. Water resistant with sound insulation properties.
Lightweight concrete blocks are made of expanded aggregate to reduce the density and weight compared to standard concrete blocks.
Autoclaved Airated Concrete Block
Autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) is a lightweight, precast, building material used for producing concrete-like blocks.
Update to older building with existing render that may also be painted
A building material made from a mixture of broken stone or gravel, sand, cement, and water, which can be spread or poured into moulds and forms a mass resembling stone on hardening.
A small rectangular block typically made of fired or sun-dried clay
Timber frame construction uses timber studs and rails, together with a structural sheathing board, to form a structural frame.
Steel frame is a building technique with a “skeleton frame” of vertical steel columns and horizontal I-beams, constructed in a rectangular grid
ICF (Insulated Concrete Forms) are premade forms that fit together. The outside of the form is flat sheets of foam insulation. During construction, the ICF blocks are fitted together, laced with rebar, and filled with concrete
Clay blocks for walls. They are able to breathe, store heat and balance room air humidity and temperature.
