Masonry: Structure and Design Seminar

November 13
Our Masonry: Structure and Design Seminar back in November provided insight to key changes made in the code since 2009 International Building Code, highlighting the most recent changes to TMS 402/602, ASTM C90, ASCE 7, ASHRAE 90.1 and IECC. The seminar focused on both structural and architectural elements. In addition, a collaborative panel discussion will explore how the two disciplines can coordinate and implement more efficient designs in masonry!
