Volume House Building Award

New House in Hampshire
Architect:Nigel Anderson
Specialist Brickwork Contractor:Brickwork Contractor: Irvine – Whitlock Ltd
Brick:Duntons – Ewhurst blend

Specialist brick work contractor, Irvine Whitlock, chose Phoenix to manufacture 61 prefabricated, flat brick arches. These hand cut arches were mounted onto reinforced concrete precast lintels. The lintels were manufactured at Phoenix’s in-house concrete plant with reinforcement and bearing plates designed by their technical team. The hand made Dunton facing once cut into gauged voussiors were hand mounted using two part epoxy resin, leaving 3mm open joints, which Irvine Whitlock pointed on site. The arches, both 290mm (four course) and 440mm (six course) face height had fair face soffits, allowing the traditional box sash windows to be set back 102mm from the face brickwork.
