Woodward fine cast brick, Tullamore Antique
AG’s Woodward Fine Cast Brick in Tullamore Antique was chosen by Coady Partnership Architects for the Corkagh Grange development of 109 new homes due to its rumbled finish and subtle tonal range.
This project was part of the Social Housing Bundle 1 Public Private Partnership project for our client John Sisk & Son Ltd, bringing much needed social housing to the region.
All apartments have been designed in accordance with the recently published ‘Sustainable Urban Housing – Design Standards for New Apartments’. Therefore, the sustainability benefits featured with Woodward Fine Cast Brick were extremely important in the overall decision when choosing a facing brick.
AG’s Woodward facing brick meet stringent CO2 criteria and are lower than that of traditional clay facings. Each Fine Cast Brick uses up to 30% less energy to produce than a kiln- fired clay brick, which requires an industrial kiln, fired at 1000+°C, to ‘fire’ bricks.
Designed and precision-engineered to challenge the aesthetic and environmental limitations of concrete brick and the environmental limitations of kiln-fired clay brick, the sustainable benefits of Woodward brick allow it to stand out against competitors.
