Thin joint blockwork systems are a fast-build Modern Method of Construction that can be used across any type of new build project. The blockwork system uses dimensionally accurate elements which are bonded using a quick-setting thin joint mortar. There are three distinct systems which use thinjoint mortar:
Calcium silicate blocks
The choice of material is based on thermal requirements, structural requirements, speed of build.
Using aircrete blocks with thinjoint the shell of a house can be completed ready for roofing in five to six days compared to the four to six weeks required with conventional construction brickwork methods.
