METHOD STATEMENT OF BRICKWORKS OBJECTIVE To assure that brickworks are inspected and confirmed to be correctly installed in accord with

drawings, specification and good working practice. PRODUCT Common Clay Brick PROCEDURES 1. The average compressive strength when tested shall be 5.2 N/mm2. 2. The average size of the bricks in a batch should not vary greatly from t he average size in the sample of 24 bricks tested. 3. Familiarize the setting out and dimensioning of brickwork on constructio n drawings and coordinate them with M&E services and architectural elements. 4. Check the cement mortar mixed ration as specified in the construction dr awing / specification. 5. Check the setting out of brickworks with reference to the grid lines and columns. 6. Locate the position of the stiffener (if needed) and cast before brickwo rk. 7. Check the installation of Damp Proof Course on the ground floor. Ensure that a layer of bituminous compound is laid on the concrete floor base before la ying of the bituminous felt and the 12mm thick base cement mortar. 8. Check if the exmet wire and the tie rod bedded at every fourth course an d ensure proper lapping of joining exmet wire. 9. Check the brickwork partition height and ceiling beam height to ensure t hat they are laid with bricks 100 mm above ceiling level. 10. Check the consistency of the 12 mm thick cement mortar bedded on bricks to ensure that no four courses to rise more than 300mm in height. 11. Check if the joint are deeply raked to 19 mm during construction. 12.

Developing and maintaining safe work practices reduces the risk of injur y. 2. Material delivery and storage areas should have enough space and lightin g to allow for the safe movement of the materials. TOOL REQUIREMENTS Brick Hammer. . junction wall an intersection wall for prope r bonding. SAFETY AND HEALTH 1. cementedgers and brick jointer. 4. Always use the suitable tools / equipment for the job. Do not manually lifting and handling equipment when and as required. 5.Check the stopped end wall. trowel set. 3.
