Bouyer-Leroux terracotta brick systems

Bio-Bric bricks present an innovative solution to new-build projects. With a basis of clay and fired with up to 60% of the necessary fuel as sawdust derived from timber manufacturing, these bricks offer a real alternative to conventional masonry construction, with its high embodied energy burden. Indeed the system also presents a serious ‘green’ alternative to lightweight timber frame buildings and their minimal thermal mass with consequent poor 'thermal flywheel' disadvantage.

Precisely manufactured, Bio Brics can be rendered externally with one-coat hydraulic lime based renders, and walls are built with thin-joint mortar beds, resulting in a much reduced labour and material input.


In addition, the BGV system (click here to view a video of this in action) offers a straightforward and very quick method of achieving U values of 0.2 W/sqmK, by combining an external wall of 20cm thickness with an internal clay partition block and cavity insulation.
