Adhered Veneer Systems for Masonry Construction
This is a NEW 1.5 hour seminar for design/build professionals sponsored by the Association of Licensed Architects, Wisconsin Chapter. Pat Conway, AIA, CSI, Director Market Development & Technical Services for the International Masonry Institute will present valuable information on how to avoid moisture related failures.
While adhered veneers are popular design choices in residential and commercial buildings, some designs have leaked water, caused moisture damage, or failed completely. These issues can range from modest moisture damage to major envelope failures.
This seminar will review design, detailing and installation of adhered veneer masonry systems. It will explore sometimes confusing and conflicting codes requirements, industry standards and manufacturer recommendations. Other topics include: material options, substrates, water resistive barriers, moisture/air/vapor, management, energy control, movement joints, specifications, job site troubleshooting and other related design and construction items.
Architects will earn 1.5 LU/HSW continuing education credits for attending.
