We inspire sustainable, contemporary brick architecture and building design in all areas of the built environment: commercial, residential and landscape.

Energy Efficiency Thermal Tool


As many brick manufactures know, thermal energy accounts for more than 80% of energy use. A thermal model has been developed to help brick companies better understand where the heat energy is flowing in their drier and kiln installations, with the aim of identifying these losses and possible best practices to mitigate those losses.
