Moisture Control and Masonry Movement Joints
This session defines best practice for design and construction of moisture management systems for masonry cavity and veneer wall systems along with movement characteristic of vertical masonry wall systems.  Focus will be on moisture control strategies, installation requirements, system components, and best practice for the design and construction of expansion and control joints to accommodate and/or restrict masonry material movement.

Masonry Plan & Specification Review
Over the years IMI has conducted thousands of plan and specification reviews for architects and engineers. This seminar is a collection of recurring 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. Better masonry information in your construction documents will help mason contractors give you 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
