Tips to Optimize Structural Masonry
SEI Dinner Program
Thursday, November 4, 2010
All attendees will receive 1 PDH and this program meets AIA/CES criteria
for Continuing Education.
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 can result in better 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.
