Brick Slips

We met with Dermot Kelly and Ciaran O'Reilly of Lagan Bricks to agree the bricks to be used for the project. From the options presented we chose a smooth-faced red brick.
As the slips are cut from full bricks they will each have a cut and a smooth face. In addition the slip from the back of the brick will have a different texture to the slip from the front. Lagan will batch separately so that the lower (exposed) course of the arches and dome can be completed in a consistent finish.
Lagan will be commencing fabrication of the brick slips tomorrow. the first delivery to site will take place lat next week. Lagan also intend to give a workshop on the history and technology of brick-making, the date for this will be confirmed later.
