Tips to Optimize Structural Masonry
International Masonry Institute
Thursday, March 16 | 2 LU/HSW

The focus of the seminar is to give participants a clearer understanding of the interrelationship in masonry buildings between materials, architecture, engineering and construction. Seemingly simple decisions can dramatically affect the building and understanding options available in materials, design and construction methods can result in more efficient and cost effective structures. Taught using a “Tips” format, the seminar will highlight areas where proper understanding of masonry - from architectural and engineering design to materials to construction methods - can result in better engineered and completed buildings. Ways to use existing materials more effectively, explanations of the effect of one selection on another, discussions of new materials and current code and specification provisions will be included.


While the webinars are free, registration (on right) is required.
