    Hi people I was wondering if anyone could help me with regards to a project I have to complete for my university course.

    What I need to know regards details of rendering on the outer face of brickwork.

    The following details I am unsure about are as follows:

    The new build house in the project has an outer leaf wall which is half rendered(top floor) and half facing brickwork(bottom floor), would the materials used beneath the render therefore be either common bricks or blockwork? Is it possible to have a half brickwork wall with the top half being rendered block work?

    If this is possible or even if it isnt what details are required between the courses of brick which split the rendered half of the wall from the facing unrendered bricks?

    Looking at a friends house there seems to be some sort of horizontal metal cill/strip between the sections but I just cannot find details of this anywhere

    Any help would be most grateful

    most likely the top section would be blocks and at the bottom of the render would be a metal bell drip,this is to deflect the water away from the brickwork a little.

    ill have a stab at this for you (1) the bottom beneath the render should be bricks (2) it is possible to have half brickwork with the top half rendered blockwork (3) the metal between the sections may be a stop bead unless its running directly above the windows in which case it is most probably a bellcast bead put in place to take the water away from the windows and will have a curved lip on it
