An introduction

By Ron Martin

I am a retired quantity surveyor. I have lived in Brighton most of my life, and I have always been interested in building materials.

Throughout my professional career, of course, I was employed in measuring and describing buildings. My interest in building materials and Brighton have come together very well in this section.

Many people are interested in the architecture of buildings, but I think it is necessary to consider what they are made of. It is very often the materials that dictates the appearance of the building.
