By Steve Palazzolo ESPN Staff WriterESPN.com Staff WriterA brickyard, as the name suggests, is a structure that consists of multiple pieces.
Brickyards are constructed with beams that connect two or more sections, sometimes by means of pulleys or bolts.

Here are five things you should know about the building materials used in brickyards.1.
The brickyard is a huge structure.
Brickyard walls are the tallest structures in the world, and the tallest brick in the United States is the 12-story, 9,500-square-foot brickyard at the Washington Monument in Washington, D.C. The Washington Monument is the tallest building in the nation, with an exterior height of 8,600 feet (2,500 meters) and an interior height of 1,900 feet (400 meters).2.
The buildings in brickyard buildings are made to last.
The bricks in these buildings are graded by size, and each building is unique in its structure.
The average brickyard construction lasts 20 to 30 years.3.
The building materials are often hand-cut by hand.
The pieces are cut in pairs, then the pieces are glued together with heat and pressure.
The process of making a brickyard wall is called molding.4.
Brickworks also use materials that are typically used for industrial buildings.
These materials include concrete, concrete blocks, brick and mortar, and other materials.
Brickwork is a highly skilled and specialized job.5.
Brickbuilding has a long history in the U.S. and has been used for years in many parts of the world.
In the U, brickwork is known as the brickyarding industry, and it has been in use for thousands of years.
