For builders with lots of cash

Recommended Posts

Only a small thermal bridge though, and the effect of that thermal bridge will be reduced by the surrounding insulation, probably to the point where the thin, offset, webs connecting the inside and outside faces can be considered to be long 2D heat loss paths.  The increased length of those heat loss paths, created by the offsets, means that the thermal resistance may well be quite high.  Even though brick as a material may not be a great insulator, make the thermal path long enough and it could well be.

Surely there's a cold bridge through the clay lines?

For a bit more cash you could clad the outside with aerogel lined MgO boards.

Let's hope the price reduces but as with all construction, it's only as good as the guy doing the work. If I look at how my house is built and the work I've down so far to fix it, these bricks in the wrong hands are a waste of time.

Ah aerogel !

n years ago couldn’t buy a small portion now I can . 10 years from now ( or another technology ) will be more affordable. I do notice the building industry is very slow to change . As an ex software engineer- 3 years later you’ve moved on !!
