yeah except it's not real brick... it's pre-assembled concrete (?) panels made to look like brick. Very widely used... One Victoria has the same except black ish.

Yeah, I know.  I was just going by the look, not the fact that it's pre-assembled.  The difference in terms of the look of the end result is not significant, istm, at least judging by other buildings that have gone up in town with the same sort of cladding (eg One Victoria).

I think they're more orange-y / beige-y than actual buff brick and lack the nice variety in colour and texture in real brick, but seem decent nonetheless.
