Program

MASONRY 101
David Collins, CSI, Director of Industry Development and Technical Services
International Masonry Institute
This program is your chance to break away from the cubicle to learn about many of our traditional masonry materials and how to design and build better with them. You will learn about masonry codes and standards including C-90, types of mortar, definition of masonry grout, reinforcement in masonry, flashing and moisture control, structural masonry and F-prime among other topics.

Then try your hand at the various construction techniques, observe their affiliated details, and ask questions. Be sure to wear comfortable clothes and work boots. Eye and hand protection will be provided.

JUST HANGING OUT ON THE WALL – MASONRY RAINSCREENS
Craig Swirzon, Thin-Clad Product Manager
Arriscraft
Specifically, we will focus on:
• Understanding the mechanism of quarried stone formation, how Calcium Silicate Stone is created and how the production process is similar to quarried stone formation, and the benefits of using Calcium Silicate Materials (i.e. Green Benefits)
• Learning about Clipped or Anchored Back Drained and Ventilated Rainscreen Applications (Sealed or Open).
• Identifying Thin-Clad wall design systems that are applicable for the particular building design, climate, codes etc.… (i.e. Energy Code (SB-10/ASHRAE 90.1) compliant wall assemblies)
• Understanding continuous insulation requirements versus the U-value of the assembly. Retrofit Applications
• Recognizing the overall design versatility of Masonry Rainscreen as a cladding material

THE CHANGING LANDSCAPE OF ADHERED VENEER INSTALLATION
Craig Swirzon, Thin-Clad Product Manager
Arriscraft
Specifically we will focus on:
• Adhered Masonry Veneers Both Exterior and Interior
• Super Flexible Polymer Fortified Mortars and cement Board and why the metal lath and scratch coat adhered veneer method is inferior and a thing of the past
• Understanding the mechanisms of adhered veneer failures of the past and how new systems address and eliminate these concerns
• Barrier Walls, Drainage Plane Walls, Insulated Drainage Plane Walls
• Energy Code (ASHRAE 90.1/SB-10/IECC) Compliant Wall Design even when using an adhered veneer
• Continuous insulation and the use of Insulated Cement Board panels for adhered veneers
• Retrofit Applications
• To recognize the overall design versatility of Adhered Masonry veneers as a cladding material
