Abstract

This paper reports on commissioned research into the technical and cost aspects of using hollow clay 'maxi' bricks in Western Cape house construction. Specifically, sample bricks were evaluated in terms of the National Building Regulations, a technical analysis was conducted of energy savings, dimensional co-ordination, structural strength, structural stability and rain penetration, and a framework for a comparison between the effect on house costs of the use of hollow clay and solid cement 'maxi' bricks was established.
