High Performing Masonry Building Enclosures
Clarifies the basic functions of the building envelope / enclosure and how masonry systems satisfy those functions through control of air, moisture, and vapor transmission. Positions masonry as a system rather than a collection of individual components, also discusses how the construction manager and building owner are demanding single source responsibility for the building envelope / enclosure, and how a mason contractor can best operate in this environment.
