ABOUT THE EVENT

Join us for our Masonry Master Class Webinar Series 2020!
Our program will offer the continuing education to build better buildings using Masonry. Masonry Master Classes are open to anyone interested in learning how masonry can contribute to a safe, sustainable and cost effective building design. Take this opportunity to attend our event and we promise you - Questions will be answered, continuing education will be achieved, credits will be earned and connections will be made

OPEN TO ALL: ARCHITECTS, ENGINEERS and CONSTRUCTION PROFESSIONALS

 WEEK 1 - 11.3.2020 
 Thermal Performance of Concrete Masonry Wall Systems: 1 AIA
Nick Carparelli, LEED Green assoc. 
Executive Director, New York State Concrete Masonry Association 

12:00pm

This presentation is based on the National Concrete Masonry Association’s (NCMA) Thermal Catalog of Concrete Masonry Assemblies. The contributions of concrete masonry’s thermal mass to energy efficient structures will be highlighted. The presentation will also introduce several strategies for insulating both single and multi-wythe construction. In addition, attendees will receive an overview of various methods of compliance for masonry assemblies with respect to the 2020 New York State Energy Conservation Code.

Week 2 - 11.10.2020
Using the Structural Design Manual for Hi-R and HI-R H pre insulated concrete masonry units: 1 AIA
David Biggs, P.E., S.E. 
Consulting Engineer  

12:00pm

With considerations about energy and sustainability, many architects are selecting pre-insulated concrete masonry units (CMU) for their projects. However, the structural design of these systems can present challenges whenever the vertical reinforcement is not symmetrical in the wall.  This presentation will identify some of the pre-insulated systems currently available, provide an overview of thermal characteristics, and address the structural aspects that designers must consider.  The emphasis will be on the design single-wythe pre-insulated CMU walls, beams and lintels using a Structural Design Manual as an example.

Week 3 - 11.17.2020 -TBD 1 AIA
Grouting Masonry: 1 AIA
Dan Siteman . 
Director, Industry Development & Technical Services

12:00pm

The introduction of grout and reinforcement in structural masonry has expanded masonry’s performance characteristics allowing for taller heights and thinner profiles. Provisions of the code and standards have become more efficient over the past few cycles, yielding to higher productivity in the field. This presentation will cover basic grouting and reinforcement requirements for structural masonry. Considerations for correct grout and reinforcement placement, tolerances, grout cover, consolidation of grout and placement of anchor bolts are discussed.

 

Week 4- 11.24.2020 -TBD 1 AIA
Brick: Designing for Durability
Speaker Brian Trimble PE, LEED AP 
Director, Industry Development & Technical Services

12:00pm

Although brick has been used for thousands of years and its durability and resilience are one of its pronounced features.  Designers are now using brick in more unique ways which result in the potential for increased weathering.  Whether it’s using brick below grade or using it on nearly horizontal building features, designers must be aware of how design decisions could be affecting performance.  This seminar will take a look at various masonry wall details from the foundation to the roof and how to improve the performance of those details.  The use of trained craftworkers who can construct some of these complicated details will be shown in case studies from around the country.
