Rationalisation and quality management will become key issues on building sites in the 21st century. The development of larger thermal insulating clay units has already made clay masonry one of the fastest methods of masonry construction. The speed on site can nevertheless be increased by using prefabricated wall elements. The different systems (thermal insulating units, clay elements, prefabricated wall elements) currently available on the German market are reviewed and compared. Abstract only.
