What does this Industry cover?
Due to its inherent earthiness and textural appeal, brickwork has witnessed a rebirth as a building material, and it is chosen as a major decorative feature for both exteriors and interiors. When it comes to brick construction, the architectural possibilities and versatility are practically limitless. Bricks come in a variety of textures, colours, sizes, and shapes, allowing for almost endless creativity both inside and out.
A refractory bricklayer is a bricklayer who specialises in the construction, alteration, or repair of boilers, flues, furnaces, retorts, kilns, ovens, and ladles using pliable, castable, marble, moulding, and insulating materials, as well as refractory work associated with acid stills, acid furnaces, acid towers, and all other acid resisting brickwork.
Government and non-government clients are looking for bricklayers that can recreate original lime putty ribbon finishes and have heritage abilities in tuck pointing, repairs, restoration, and conservation of Australia's built heritage.
