Project 52 ... 39

This is Ben. Ben joined us as a Year Out student in Architecture this summer.

We take in students most years during their studies. Ben has spent a lot of the summer doing door and window schedules and drawing up plans on the computer.

Thanks Ben for being a good sport!

To learn more about brick sizes...

To schedule a window or door you have to say what size it is and how it fits into a brick or block wall. To do that you need to know the size of the bricks. Here he is measuring a brick, for those who don't know,  a brick measures 215mm x 102.5mm x 65mm and the co-ordinating size, with a mortar joint all around is an extra 10mm to each of those dimensions. If you live in a house where the windows are bespoke then the joints will align wonderfully, if you live in a housing estate with 'off the shelf' windows then they won't. Off the shelf windows are not made to brick sizes... that would be too easy.
