Why Use Vision?
Where the industry goes wrong
- Damaged or stolen plant having to be constantly replaced
- Bricklayers installing the wrong ties at incorrect centres or locations
- Support systems failing because of incorrect fitting or torque settings
- Delays To programmes due to structural tolerances that require changes to be made to designed systems.
Incorrectly fitted masonry restraints can have extremely large financial implications. They not only impact a project but can be extreme enough to affect a company's financial position. We know of several projects where 1st floor incorrectly fitted masonry support systems have failed, resulting in each floor of masonry built above being taken down and re-built, with costs running into tens of thousands of pounds.
Bricklayers and Labourers are not structural engineers and don’t understand the consequences and engineering aspects of how a support system works. They would not be expected to erect steel /concrete structural frame work and yet they get involved in fitting masonry restraints which are an equally important structural part of the building.
From A Bricklayer's Perspective
We wouldn't expect a structural steel erecter to lay bricks so therefore why not allow bricklayers to do what they do best and what they are skilled in.
