Brickworks Building Products has announced a new initiative to help Australians impacted by the recent bushfires rebuild their destroyed homes.

The recent catastrophic bushfires destroyed over 8.5 million hectares of land as well as more than 2000 homes, leaving thousands of Australians displaced as they watched their homes and communities burn to the ground.

Brickworks’ new initiative aims to lend a helping hand to those affected by the bushfires. Homeowners whose homes were built using Austral Bricks and which were lost to the bushfire, will have all the bricks replaced by Brickworks, free of charge.

In the case of homes constructed from other building materials, Brickworks will assist their rebuild by providing all the materials in their portfolio at a 50% discount. These include Brickworks’ range of non combustible, fire resistant bricks, pavers, roof tiles, masonry blocks and retaining walls.

Brickworks Building Products managing director, Lindsay Partridge said, "This is an extremely devastating time for many Australians, and it is important to have the support of friends, family and the community. We at Brickworks have been touched by the Australian community banding together to help those in need, and we are honoured to make this contribution that will hopefully leave less of a financial burden on those that have lost their homes.

"At Brickworks we care about the community and we understand that those impacted by the fires have a long road ahead, but we want to do our bit to help get those affected back on their feet."

This initiative will be available to fire victims for the next two years for product to be delivered.
