Join us for breakfast and masonry education as we review case studies and share many of the lessons learned throughout our years of west coast masonry design and construction.

This session uses a case study format to highlight ten commonly made masonry construction, detailing and design mistakes.  These mistakes can lead to on-going building performance issues throughout the course of the building’s life.  Topics include material understanding, moisture and movement issues, field testing, supervisory methods and constructability. This program is sponsored by the International Masonry Institute.

  1. Gain an understanding of cavity wall components and construction codes.
  2. Gain an understanding of tolerances and inspection guidelines.
