Brick is installed.

Note the gap between the brick below the Relieving Angle / Shelf Angle. Also the gap left where the lower leg of the angle ends. Plans will show what is intended for these areas. Often ther is a foam backer rod and pliable sealant installed, and in the gap below the angle there can be some type of compressible foam, neoprene or other material. These finishing steps are usually not the responsibility of the Steel Fabricator.
