Based on a PL. 3.1 stretcher plinth, this was made by rebating a standard 65mm brick and bonding in an angled insert cut from a matching 73mm brick. The angled face dimension at 45° would be 79mm, so we increased the angle slightly until the 73mm insert met with the top of the brick. This created a plinth that retained the important 9mm up-stand, and was still a sympathetic match for the existing building.
* We also supplied a sample PL.3.1, cut from a single brick and refaced to the correct size and angle, but the architect preferred the ‘ brick insert’ option, and we turned the order out quickly and at very short notice.
