Just because a building's designed using glass, steel, or concrete doesn't mean a brick or block manufacturer and masonry contractor can't get the job to build it. They just have to team up and convince the owner and architect to build it using brick or block instead. That's the strategy of Mike Miller of Intermountain Brick Company and Tom Kelly of Dan Berich Masonry, Inc., both of Denver. They team up, each giving the other credibility, to convince owners and architects that masonry is a good choice. Miller and Kelly don't always work together; they also team up with other contractors and manufacturers. Together the contractor and manufacturer can guarantee construction cost and time. They also point out the advantages of reinforced through-wall clay brick: interior and exterior finish, fire and sound resistance, and structure all in one.
