This webinar is the first of a 3-part series on masonry design. It will focus on masonry materials, their structural properties and how these materials are used in everyday designs for buildings, foundations, and landscaping. Masonry is often used for building foundations and exterior walls, for fire separation walls on building interiors and used in landscaped and terraced exterior walls. This webinar will be followed by two sessions on masonry design. Masonry design is rarely taught in college design courses so practitioners must research how to use this material. This webinar is intended to close the knowledge gap and provide a background in the use of this material.
Note: This is a live webinar delivered via WebEx. Session instructions will be emailed to you 24-48 hours prior to the webinar and the morning of the webinar. If you have not received your instructions for any reason please call client support the day of the event. Webinars are live and interactive and students will have the ability to directly interact with and ask questions of the presenter.
