    Tips for Optimizing Structural Masonry 


    Brian E. Trimble, PE, CDT, LEED AP

    International Masonry Institute

    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.

    Brian Trimble has over 25 years’ experience in the masonry industry, assisting design professionals in the design of masonry structures. He is a frequent lecturer to local, regional, and national construction industry groups. He has authored many articles and papers on various masonry subjects. Brian started his career with a brick manufacturer and worked at the Brick Industry Association for over 20 years serving in various positions. For the International Masonry Institute he coordinates activities in the Western PA area promoting masonry to a wide variety of audiences including owners, contractors, architects, engineers and craftworkers.
