Get a clearer understanding of the interrelationship in masonry buildings between materials, architecture, engineering and construction. Seemingly simple decisions can dramatically affect cost and schedule on a project. By understanding the various options available in materials, design and construction methods, more cost-efficient structures will result. Taught using a “Tips” format, the seminar will highlight areas where proper understanding of masonry can result in better buildings. Ways to use existing materials more effectively, explanations of the effect of one selection on another, and discussions of new materials will be included.
