Bricks – The Three Little Pigs
In this classic story, we don’t just learn the importance of suitability of materials, but also why taking time to understand what a building needs to withstand, can impact on its makeup.
For those familiar with this fairytale, you’ll remember that the first little pig didn’t want to work on his house and chose Straw – quick and easy. The second pig followed a similar direction and selected sticks.
But the third pig worked the hardest out of the three pigs and chose to use bricks – more time consuming, but a great choice for fairytale-esq windy conditions!
Long story short – the wolf (the bad guy in the story) blew the first two houses over, but not the third!
Although we know this is fictional, it does highlight the need to select materials carefully.
The examples above demonstrate the importance of using the correct materials, suited to the project at hand, along with innovation and a highly skilled workforce.
