I spoke to someone with one of the outside units (who’d had the council officer in) and they said they contractor had run out of paving bricks and they are imported from the Netherlands or some shite and they’re on back order. 🙈
Not surprised they ran out, they are laying them on their thin side. Don’t know owt about paving public highways but surely you lay them on the flat to use the bigger surface area?

It looks nice on the side but must’ve quadrupled the number of bricks required.
I like the stack, I like the vibe, I do not like the prices
It’s reasonable. £5 a pint and food for way less than a tenner.

Aye depending on the brick, some a little quicker but some even longer.
Currently sorting 1.5 million for a job and they are 28 weeks from Ibstock.
1.5 m!

Jeez I know nowt about bricks but that seems an awful lot. Does someone have to count them all to make sure you got what you ordered?

Netherlands will be Hardscape probably, bloody expensive too, just as nice ones made over here by others.
Rumour going about that Esh are struggling. You heard owt?
Nah nowt really, think they sold off Deerness fencing but could be wrong.
I'll ask like.

I'll not be counting them like, it's over a few years that though mind.

Its the style of paving, seen it on a few jobs now. They aren't on their side thats how they are supposed to be laid, the reason they look like they are is that they are heavy duty blocks for heavy traffic areas.
It’s a footpath on the quieter of the 2 paths, the seafront obviously being the busier of the two.

As i said earlier they are heavy duty blocks. Hence the depth of them.
You can get heavy normal shape though, 80mm rectangular will take bin wagons, use in airports etc.
From what people are saying these look like normal blocks on edge so quite a long slim profile, unless I've read it wrong?

Seen them like that on other jobs too, and it is for strength. If the said blocks were laid on their side they wouldn't take the stresses.
