Bricklaying is one of the oldest and most highly respected crafts of the construction trades.
A bricklayer is a skilled craftsperson, who using their talents and training is able to properly position masonry units, to create efficient, beautiful buildings and other structures.
The bricklayers role in the construction of buildings is normally, but not limited to, building walls.
The work must be coordinated with other trades to insure the buildings are completed on schedule.
It is very rewarding for bricklayers to look back at projects they have been a part of throughout their careers.
