Cost Effective Design with Masonry

November 11, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

According to recent cost comparison studies, concrete masonry has a competitive initial cost with wood construction and is more cost-effect over time.  Architects are challenged when creating a design balancing resiliency, aesthetics, and construction cost. How do you create a strong structure on budget without sacrificing the design values clients want?

In this course, experts from Oldcastle APG & Echelon Masonry will outline the aesthetic opportunities with masonry materials that not only create a great project but build a safer project. In this session we will contrast the differences and interaction of masonry structural materials during the specification process and gain a working knowledge of masonry specifications and their effect on aesthetic and structural performance of a project.

WHEN: November 11th at 1:00 pm

This course has been approved for 1 AIA LU|HSW
