Why we're involved?

PGH Bricks & Pavers is very passionate about working towards a greener and more sustainable future through responsible manufacturing and recycling raw product. Being involved in this project and contributing to Adelaide’s first ten-star energy efficient house is a great honour. We hope that it will generate plenty of interest from the public and showcase what can be achieved in terms of sustainable, energy-efficient design through collaboration and a genuine desire to make a difference. This project proves that it is possible to create a home with a ten-star rating that also looks and functions beautifully and, most importantly, is designed for modern day Australian living with a seamless indoor-outdoor transition.

How we're assisting in resilient built environments.

Brick is predominantly made from clay and shale, which are among the most abundant materials available on earth. They are incredibly durable and created with minimal waste, all of which can be reused in future products - again and again. Bricks can be salvaged, cleaned and reused to create new buildings when old buildings are pulled down. For example, demolition sites often resell bricks to builders or architects who are looking to match existing brick or to create an authentic, rustic appearance on a renovating project. Furthermore, because they have such a high thermal mass, bricks offer superior insulation – keeping the cold out and the warmth in so less energy is required by homeowners to heat or cool their homes.

Adding health and amenity for the user.

As mentioned before, solid materials such as brick have a very high thermal mass. This means that in summer they absorb the heat from the sun and keep the home cooler, making it much more comfortable for occupants. Similarly, in winter, bricks hold the heat for longer to keep the home warmer. Brick veneer wall assemblies also control moisture better than wall systems with other exterior materials: Although not completely waterproof, clay bricks resist the penetration of rainwater, including wind-driven rain, thus minimising mold growth, wood rot and infestation by insects, and corrosion of fasteners embedded in wood better than other wall assemblies

Empowering owners choices.

We provide detailed information on our website and in all our marketing collateral about how brick is extremely durable, made from natural materials, and reduces energy consumption due to its thermal mass and insulation properties. We also regularly participate in sustainability projects such as this exciting Sagacious project, to showcase brick as a sustainable building material, drive awareness and lead by example.

Increasing our presence in the community to encourage future thinking design.

PGH Bricks has demonstrated its commitment to environmentally sustainable manufacturing by using clay waste from Melbourne’s Parkville Tunnel Project to create new bricks. Not only is this better for the environment – reusing waste rather than sending it to landfill – there’s the social benefit of its use to build homes for new residents in the suburbs of Melbourne. Recycling waste from construction sites also serves to provide longevity for the community who work at our Thomastown factory, where the raw material will be converted into bricks, as we’re not extracting the clay from our own quarry. There are three stages planned for this project, the first of which will equate to 300,000 tonnes of clay, which can produce up to 10 million bricks. This will then potentially be followed by another two stages comprising 900,000 tonnes, to create another 30 million bricks.
