There’s now even more options in the Marshalls facing brick portfolio
The recently launched Kingsvale range adds a traditional creased texture to a growing array of finishes in the Marshalls facing brick collection and is available in a variety of colours, providing even more choice.

By choosing Marshalls bricks you can expect a total lifetime CO2 reduction of 49.1%. And with concrete bricks naturally absorbing CO2 as they age, there is no better low-carbon brick available.
The concrete-facing brick range from Marshalls offers professional builders a sustainable choice that doesn’t impact productivity.
Here we share two recent projects to provide inspiration and ideas on how to use the versatile concrete brick range:
Creating a luxury feature
As part of a private residential self-build project, the customer wished to create a two-storey floor to apex internal feature wall.
In collaboration with Edge-Architecture and Ark Homes the team designed the layout of a single skin wall, whereby the bricks were laid using a random pattern of headers and stretchers, with the headers cut on-site to halves before being laid. Selected bricks were chosen to protrude to create a contemporary 3D look.
Striking garden brickwork
For outdoors spaces that need renovation or rejuvenation garden brickwork can add practicality and a stylish addition to gardens large or small.
In a Kent garden the customer wanted to add a garden wall, planters and to repair water damaged brickwork to garden steps. Using a combination of blue perforated engineering bricks, Langston gold perforated bricks and Islington stock frogged bricks the brickwork additions to the garden created striking features.
The bricklayer on this project appreciated the dimensional consistency that the bricks offered and easy bonding with mortar.
