Clay or Mud bricks

Traditional forms of clay brickwork are a low impact building material, but only when sourced locally.
//stats to be added

Clay and concrete brickwork have low thermal resistance and therefore relatively poor insulation values. Combined with internal and external air films and a cavity, they achieve moderate thermal resistance.

The thermal resistance of brick and blockwork walls, including veneer or cavity construction, can be greatly enhanced by adding foil or bulk insulation. Wall insulation should be accompanied by appropriate detailing to avoid thermal transfers by bridging through window and door frames, by radiation through window openings or by convection through leakage.
