National award rewards Ibstock’s people first approach to energy efficiency

December 2019

Ibstock plc has been rewarded for its ‘people-first’ approach to energy efficiency at the Energy Awards 2019.

The UK’s leading manufacturer of clay and concrete products was crowned winner of the Behaviour Change / Employee Engagement Award in recognition of the work it has done in inspiring staff to engage in and reduce energy consumption across the business.

The group’s energy efficiency and wider sustainability ambitions are being achieved by putting people at the heart of the company. The group identified people as the main energy users, and implemented a two-year training plan tailored for significant energy users and all energy users. The aim of the programme was to motivate employees to focus on best practice and take responsibility for their role in managing energy consumption.

Communication has also been key to Ibstock’s success. It has been mindful to consider the views of the key stakeholder before embarking on changes to the business and ensuring employees understand and are aware of the group’s activities and success.

The benefits of the programme have been substantial and significant. Highlights include:

On average it now takes almost 65% less energy to make brick than was the case in 1970.

Energy saving measures means the business is on target to achieve a 15% reduction in CO2 per tonne of production.

In a competitive category, the judges were impressed by the bottom-up approach to ensure the engagement of employees was genuine and sustainable, commenting “Not only were employees engaged, but results achieved were real and significant. We are confident this program will continue to deliver results going forward, often the problem with behavioural change initiatives.”

Commenting on the win, Group Sustainability Manager Michael McGowan, said:

“We recognise that we are major energy users, and delivering sustainable performance is a priority for us. Whilst we have invested in energy efficient plant and clean technologies to make performance improvements, we realised that our energy efficiency ambitions could only be achieved by putting people at the heart of our strategy.

“We have worked hard to create an environment in which change is embraced and new ways of doing things are welcomed. In doing so, we have been able to develop resource-efficient approaches to problem solving. The results achieved are a testament to the way in which our employees have become more aware of ways to improve energy usage across our operations. This latest award offers proof that our hard-working team is doing the right things and our people led strategies are working.”

Ibstock collaborate with Architectural Association School of Architecture

December 2019

Ibstock Brick has joined forces with the Architectural Association School of Architecture (AA) to look at the important role that brick plays in helping to create buildings and spaces that can transform communities and inspire people to work and live better.

The partnership between Ibstock and the AA will see Year 2 undergraduates that are working towards their ARB/RIBA Part 1 complete a module around ceramics in architecture titled ‘Digital Craft: Beyond Certainty and Risk. Taught jointly by Dylan Wozniak O’Connor and Patricia Mato-Mora (two digital fabrication specialists and architectural researchers), the module gives students the opportunity to understand and appreciate the material qualities of brick.

Patricia Mato-Mora, lecturer at the AA and course tutor, said:

“Bricks have been a mainstay of the UK’s built environment for thousands of years and continue to be the material of choice for those seeking incredible aesthetics combined with the health, safety and longevity benefits that masonry build is known for. It is therefore imperative that our undergraduates understand the capabilities of brick in detail so I am delighted that the AA has joined forces with Ibstock, the UK’s marketing leading brick manufacturer, to deliver this important part of the course.”

As part of the programme, students will have the opportunity to design and manufacture ceramic dual-purpose building components through a hybrid approach of numeric and manual fabrication, with Ibstock clay materials being used in conjunction with innovative 3D printing tools, prototyping and robotics to create building elements such as arches, columns, domes and walls.

The combination of industrial robotics with the manual making processes will enable students to produce digitally manufactured building modules informed by the physical and haptic intimacy of clay to push the limits of the capabilities of the the material.

Ben Gerry, Commercial Director at Ibstock Solutions said:

“As a business at the heart of building, we are extremely passionate about the role that brick plays in the development of UK’s built environment.

“Having the opportunity to work in partnership with the AA and what will be the next generation of UK architects on this important module is absolutely fantastic. As two organisations, the AA and Ibstock share many of the same values, with our commitment to innovation and producing ideas that challenge and advance the design of contemporary architecture.”

As part of the partnership, Ibstock’s South Holmwood factory in Dorking is donating over 300kg of clay materials to the AA for its students to carry out the practical elements of the module including the 3D printing. Students will also have the chance to visit Ibstock’s brick manufacturing plant to see first hand how bricks are manufactured from clay, including the preparation of clay, moulding, drying and firing.

Ibstock’s design advisor, Sarah Jefferson (BA Hons Dip Arch RIBA), who is based at the company’s ‘I-Studio’ in London – an innovative and inspirational space where architects can meet and share ideas in the capital’s architectural district, will also be giving the students a lecture as part of their module. ‘An Introduction to Brickwork’ covers the manufacturing process of handmade, stock and extruded wirecut bricks, looks at the sustainability and durability of bricks as a building material and outlines the different types of mortar, mix, colours, profiles and brickwork bonds.

Sarah concluded:

“We are looking forward to working with the AA on this exciting project, helping the students learn more about the important role bricks play in buildings in the UK.”
