Learn & Improve On An Ancient Trade with Lennox Masonry in Victoria, BC
Who We Are:
Lennox Masonry operates out of Victoria, BC and specializes in restoring masonry structures such as chimneys, buildings, and retaining walls, as well as building new custom stone features. With over 20 years in the masonry industry we are well versed and incredibly knowledgable when it comes to conserving and building in the medium of stone and brick. We have completed hundreds of heritage chimneys and stone walls throughout our community, establishing ourselves as a trusted and reliable masonry company in the city of Victoria, BC. We are now looking to grow our small team of skilled and competent stonemasons and bricklayers to include passionate, conscientious, and reliable team-players.
An Ancient Trade:
Masonry is an ancient craft and art form which involves working directly with the elements for both practical and aesthetic purposes. Whether utilizing masonry to construct houses or to create unique, long-lasting features, masonry has stood the test of time as an ideal means of preserving the past and conserving the future. When constructed properly with sustainable materials and routine maintenance, stone and brick structures can remain standing for decades, if not centuries (and in some cases, millennia). When working with mediums such as stone, building a structure that will span lifetimes is an incredibly rewarding aspect of the trade.
Why Choose Masonry:
"Both stonemasonry and bricklaying contain a multitude of learning opportunities. At Lennox Masonry, you will get to experience them all. You will be exposed to the building process of everything from stone walls and chimneys to patios, walkways, and fireplaces. You will learn about geology, numerous types of stone and their ideal applications, how to formulate mortars based on the specific materials being utilized, and you will also receive an education on restoring historical brick and stone structures. One of the greatest challenges and rewards of working in a trade such as masonry, is learning to collaborate and problem-solve as a team, while working outdoors with and against the elements. You will learn how to train your eyes and mind to become critical instruments which will ultimately aid you in achieving the desired results both on and off the job site. For example, with consistent practice and creative focus, you will obtain the skill set to look at a pile of stones and piece them together in your mind before even picking up a trowel. You will be introduced to the optimal way of carrying and leveraging heavy materials, reducing the physical impact and long-term ramifications on your body when dealing with large weights. You will have the opportunity to confront building complications and challenge yourself to discover the optimal solution to those problems. You will also be immersing yourself in other trades such as carpentry and landscaping in an effort to fulfill the requirements of certain projects. And what better place to delve into a masonry career than in Victoria, BC where you’re surrounded by lush rainforests, mountain ranges, and incredible coastlines?
Learning about and working in an ancient trade such as masonry has been one of the greatest catalysts for growth that I have ever experienced. And my goal is to share in that growth with those who are willing to explore the countless possibilities that masonry has to offer."
