    Excellence in Single Wythe Masonry
    There’s more than one choice for a building’s envelope; using concrete masonry architectural units provide a durable and permanent material that will last the lifetime of the building. This program not only explores how to properly design single-wythe concrete masonry walls, but focuses on the prevention of moisture mitigation, how to minimize various wall movements and review simple yet effective cleaning techniques.

    Learning Objective #1:

    Identify and review architectural concrete masonry units by product types, styles, colors and finishes.

    Learning Objective #2:

    Address and discern details to minimize wall movement and to prevent moisture mitigation while incorporating the rain screen principle for single-wythe design.

    Learning Objective #3:

    Ensure and define the proper performance of masonry units through insulating methods mandated by our energy codes.

    Learning Objective #4:

    Illustrate and reinforce the fundamentals of good construction practices for cleaning and sealing block post construction.
