Masonry Drawing & Specification Review

Over the years IMI has conducted thousands of masonry drawing and specification reviews for architects, engineers, construction managers, general contractors, and mason contractors.

This seminar is a collection of reoccurring observations of construction documents that will help you understand how to assemble comprehensive masonry information to create more functional, durable, aesthetically pleasing and economical masonry details.

More thorough masonry information in your construction documents will help mason contractors generate more inclusive bids, minimize or eliminate requests for information (RFI’s) and changes during construction, and help you establish realistic masonry expectations for your next project
