Masonry Innovation
New Products and systems that address performance, prefabrication, aesthetics, and speed of construction are continuously being developed for the masonry industry. This seminar will look at the changing landscape for masonry delivery. Discussions will include a review of research programs that improve efficiencies of the building enclosure. The integration of robotics on the job site will also be explored along with a demonstration of Construction Robotics’ Material Unit Lift Enhancer, a device designed for handling and placing material with weights up to 135 lbs.

Designing & Detailing High-Performing Masonry Rainscreen Walls
This program investigates the building science and evolution of high-performing masonry wall concepts from mass walls to pressured and non-pressurized cavity walls. Attendees will learn how challenging problems of water, air, vapor, and energy control concepts are integrated for successful and innovative exterior wall solutions. Attendees will learn how masonry rainscreens can be achieved with traditional anchored veneers or light-gauged sub-frame systems to support thin lightweight masonry units such as natural stone, terracotta, brick, porcelain stone, calcium silicate, glass-fiber reinforced concrete, and high-pressure laminates.
