Lime is the mortar recommended both by architecture conservationists and eco builders for bonding masonry walls. Why lime? There are several reasons, including:
easy to remove and reuse the bricks / stone
deals with water in masonry better
protects surrounding masonry from damage
flexible so enables movement
the traditional bonding material
We're looking forward to getting hands on at this lime practical course on Saturday 14th May. The Pendle Heritage Centre is a beautiful setting for a course and the Heritage Trust for the North West is a great cause to support. The perfect CPD!
The benefit of working with an architect is that we carry out regular training to update our skills and knowledge. At iarchitect this CPD (continuing professional development) is used to make sure we are up to speed with best practice and latest technologies.
