  • Wall construction: is it cavity wall, timber frame, external solid wall, internal solid wall?
  • How thick the masonry is going to be: will you be using block, brick or stone?
  • Lintel loading conditions: floor or roof loads need to be accounted for in addition to masonry loads, to determine whether your requirement is a light, standard, heavy or extreme load?
