Part-I of this three series blog described a whole lot about construction and the history of various materials used for constructing buildings. Most importantly it described two major components used for constructing buildings and also a comparison between them which were stone and bricks. Stones, in fact, as described in the first blog has been currently replaced by bricks. Although stone masonry had its advantages, what made it less preferred in the construction of buildings is the complex work involved in crafting structures using it, but we have to admit that the buildings and monuments crafted using stones surely gives a unique aesthetic beauty and appeal.
We see structures going up everyday, but do we realize the effort behind it. Construction requires great commitment, resources and technical skills. When it comes to resources, we are familiar with the construction materials such as Bricks, Concrete, Reinforced steel and such. When we look at the history of the construction, we have come a long way from using stones to bricks to different variations of bricks. In any construction, the most needed component apart from concrete and steel are bricks, obviously.
