Bekaert Brickforce® - Value Engineering

Case Study
Structural and Crack Control for Masonry, Molineux Stadium Redevelopment for Wolves FC.

Bekaert worked together with the engineer and main contractor to optimize the performance of the masonry elements to meet the load requirements for expected crowd load – a specific design aspect for stadia.

The use of Brickforce® enables the load capacity of masonry to be significantly increased over that of unreinforced masonry. Brickforce® has the additional benefit of providing crack control and can be used to increase panel lengths, therefore reducing the number of movement joints required.
