We developed a 1-1/2 brick bond for our project at Kanha National park. For the load bearing ground +1 structure with corner reinforcements within the walls.
1. Efficient joint breakage vertically and laterally.
2. Less wastage of bricks
3. Gaps for continuous hidden reinforcement within the wall.
4. Amazing wall pattern for a great exposed brick structure.
Approved by our structural engineer -Mr. Himanshu Tulpule.
The only problem- They didn’t use it for the house. The local labour decided to proceed with a bond they knew better – The tried and tested ‘English Bond’
