DVS en Masonry: Bricklaying

Code :

Durée du programme : heures | mois


Description :

Brickmasons cut, trim and lay masonry units such as bricks, stone blocks and glass blocks. They build different types of walls, partitions, residential chimneys, and furnaces. They are usually employed by construction contractors. Brickmasons’ duties consist primarily in covering walls and lining chimneys. To do their work, they use trowels, levels, jointers, and scutches for breaking and trimming brick. To enjoy working with tools is therefore a must. These construction workers must also be capable of visualizing the finished product before beginning to lay the brick. This means that they must be quick at reading and understanding blueprints. Brickmasons work in both the residential and the commercial sectors. Work is usually seasonal (from May to October).
