7:45 - REGISTRATION & CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST

8:00 - UPDATING YOUR MASONRY DETAILS
Brian Trimble. PE, LEED AP
Regional VP, Engineering Services - Brick Industry Association

Current energy requirements are changing how walls are designed and built, which affects many of the traditional components in the masonry cavity wall assembly. In response to new information regarding building science, this lecture focuses on masonry detailing to achieve high performing wall systems. Moisture management, anchor/tie, air/vapor barrier, thermal control and masonry veneer systems are discussed. Specifying correct requirements for brick will also be addressed.

9:30 - MASONRY JOBSITE TROUBLESHOOTING
Tom Nagy, Director of Industry Development and Technical Services
International Masonry Institute

Masonry load-bearing and veneer wall systems are still the #1 choice for educational, institutional, and commercial facility design. However, while masonry attributes are obvious, causes and remedies of occasional problems can be elusive. This seminar focuses on understanding best practice for producing high-quality assemblies that are aesthetically pleasing and high-performing buildings that serve the end user for decades. Masonry detailing, planning, management, and means-and-methods that support proper design and construction will be discussed with focus on identifying, diagnosing, and correcting problematic items.

10:30 - MOCKUP REVIEW & INTERACTIVE HANDS-ON
IMI Certified instructors

Attendees will learn correct as-built conditions of masonry cavity walls by examining pre-built, static mockups as well gain understanding of safe and proper techniques of unit masonry installation – through demonstration and individual participation.

12:00 – CERTIFICATES ISSUED / PROGRAM CONCLUDES

Who

This training program is intended primarily for Architects, Engineers, Specifiers, Building Owners, Facilities Managers, CMs, GCs, Code Officials, and signatory masonry Contractors.
