Combine this with our on-site customer service and our keen ear for real-world feedback, and we’re confident you won’t find a better building partner.

Useful Resources:

Planning a new housing development is complex and challenging.

That’s why Brickfab offers full design support, with CAD drawings available for each product (in 2D or 3D) and a partnering approach with housebuilders that ensures their schemes are executed in a manner that closely matches the masterplan.

Brick Clad Chimneys:

Quick to acquire, simple to install and cost-effective – our prefabricated brick or stone clad chimney solutions are designed to meet the visual and structural requirements of your housebuilding project, no matter the scale. Available in brick, stone or ready for rendering on-site, we deliver our prefabricated chimneys ready for pointing with lifting eyes pre-installed.

We manufacture using bricks collected from site, guaranteeing a perfect match with the rest of the build. We prefabricate our chimneys in factory conditions to the highest standards of quality control, and Live Class 1 and 2 chimneys are available.

Prefabricated Brick Arches

To add decorative flourish, our range of off-site manufactured arches are the perfect fit for your build. We supply brick-faced arches with full soffit cladding options too. Our customer focus means we supply products in the way that suits your project, collecting bricks from site to ensure a perfect colour match. If you don’t see the arch you’re looking for, just give us a call.

All brick arches supplied by Brickfab are prefabricated off site to ensure quality standards and are available to order with a variety of height, pattern, soffit, backing and infill options.

Brick Specials

Cut and bond brick and block products are a mainstay of the housebuilding industry, helping structures to go up quickly, efficiently and with the best possible finish.

Our brick special manufacturing is carried out in factory conditions to the highest standards of quality control; our British Standard brick specials are produced by the ‘cut and bond’ method and conform to BS4729. We also provide a complete range of angles, pistols, slips and bats, all prefabricated to your requirements.

GRP Chimneys

Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) is a matrix of woven glass fibre sheets layered and set within resin; it has an excellent strength to weight ratio, and can be moulded into almost any shape and size with highly detailed textures, finishes and unlimited colours.

These lightweight prefabricated solutions require little to no reinforcement in situ, and are manufactured at our in-house facilities to the highest standards using a unique process that gives us the fastest supplier times in the market.

Bricklite Cladding Panels

As a lightweight alternative to brick or block construction, our Bricklite panels offer a quick and easy cladding solution. The wall panels are made to in-fill places on a building’s exterior or interior that cannot be brick or stone built due to the shape, details of the house build or structural concerns. They replicate perfectly the appearance of full brick or stone wall cladding, with less weight and less hassle.

GRP Canopies

Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) is a matrix of woven glass fibre sheets layered and set within resin. For housebuilding projects where there is no scope for brick, block or structural canopies, our GRP porch canopy solutions can be the perfect solution.

Lightweight and easy to install, our non-structural canopies make the perfect finishing touch to an outer doorway, and are available in a number of different sizes and specifications.

Adding value by reducing effort at Tadpole Garden Village

Adding value by reducing effort at Tadpole Garden Village

Tadpole Garden Village is a multi-housebuilder development in Blunsdon, Swindon, which includes hundreds of homes constructed by long-standing Brickfab customer David Wilson Homes (part of Barratt Developments Plc).

To ensure a continuity of supply and guaranteed quality, David Wilson Homes looked to Brickfab to supply from across its product range. With 202 plots to develop, DWH understood the importance of a reliable supply partner and the obvious benefits of factory construction for features such as arches and chimneys.

In keeping with Brickfab’s customer-focused approach, we did more than just supply products to order. In fact, Brickfab was involved at multiple stages, taking responsibility for product design (2D and 3D CAD drawings), site measurements and product consultations via a series of site visits, buyer consultations, manufacture, and supply with considerately timed flexible delivery.

The need for flexibility and empathy with the customer continues to be key for this site. Brickfab has been able to expedite deliveries and additional orders as the customer works with seasonal peaks in homebuyer exchanges and completions. Furthermore, Brickfab consulted with the site team and the buyer at DWH to ensure stock requirements were managed, latterly amending the agreed order and production scheduling to accommodate revised house designs as the site develops and phases are completed.



Products in plan:

Brick specials (including internal/external angles, plinths, gables, extended bricks and chamfered blocks) numbering in the thousands.
257 arches (flat gauge and segmental).
62 brick clad chimneys (‘Thames’, gable end and gable ladder).



“Our partnership approach adds real value to our relationship with the DWH team on this site, and their regional office,” explains National Sales Manager Robert Evans. “With so much going on on-site for the customer, we were able to offer ‘just in time’ delivery and simple order call-offs, as well as collecting bricks from site to ensure perfect colour matching. In this way, with careful order scheduling and design support, we were able to ensure that each time a house was going up the right brick products were on the right plot at the right time.”



Further Information:

David Wilson Homes is part of Barratt Developments Plc. Every year since 2009, the Group is officially the highest quality major national housebuilder, having been awarded an exclusive ‘5 Star Housebuilder Award’ by the Homebuilders Federation.
