Hi, I'm knocking out a single skin wall and fitting an rsj in the aperture. Have been in touch with BC who have specced the steel and advised 3 courses of engineering bricks to replace existing at each end of the beam.

The original brickwork is turn of the century and slightly larger than modern engineering brick and a little haphazard. Do I need to interlock or tooth in to the original brick or is it acceptable to cut a rectangular chunk out and start my 3 courses that way?

Thanks

Your original brickwork is Imperial (Bricks being 73mm deep) while new engineering bricks are Metric ( 65mm deep)

It would be perfectly acceptable for you to cut out rectangular portions of brickwork and replace with Engineering bricks as you sugest.
