  • This most popular and highly pragmatic presentation examines the composition of prevalent flashing products and their impact on sustainability and life cycle costs, how to specify through-wall flashings to avoid compatibility issues, the performance characteristics and different types of commonly used cavity wall materials and how to create a resilient flashing system. It takes a close look at the necessary ancillary masonry products and the potential challenges with detailing and installation.

  • This mortar presentation reviews the differences between Cement, Concrete, Masonry Cement and Mortar. In addition to becoming familiar with the types and components of mortar, we review the details of ASTM C270 “Standard Specification for Mortar for Unit Masonry” and ASTM C780 “Standard Test Method for Preconstruction and Construction Evaluation of Mortars for Plain and Reinforced Unit Masonry”, and their respective use and application in the specifications and during construction. It concludes with the aesthetic impact of mortar color and tooling and proper clean down procedures.

  • A practical presentation that explores the different types of manufactured concrete products and the process by which they are produced. We review masonry-specific terminology and definitions; including code-specific terms as well as regional nomenclature, and it identifies the standards of manufactured concrete products and the relevant physical requirements stipulated within these standards, and it describes the products and the materials used in the construction of concrete masonry systems, including reinforcing steel, grout, and mortar; and the relevant code provisions covering these materials.
