​3 LU's (2 HSW) Credits Approved


9:00 – 10:00 a.m: High-Performing Masonry Building Enclosures - 1 LU/HSW AIA Credit

Pat Conway, International Masonry Institute

Contemporary brick, block, and stone wall assemblies can endure for decades and provide superior rain, air, vapor, and thermal attributes. Learn how to properly locate these control layers that manage these attributes to create sustainable exterior building enclosures that meet future energy code requirements and offer a durable high performing wall system.


10:00 - 11:00 a.m: Enhanced Performance Installation Systems for Thin Adhered Masonry Veneer (AMV) - 1 LU/1 HSW AIA Credit

Bob Duke, LATICRETE International Inc.

This CEU will focus on new installation methods, substrates and waterproofing options for the “thin is in” Adhered Masonry Veneer (Thin Brick, Manufactured Stone and Thin Natural Stone) exterior façade finishes. Standards development and code compliance will be discussed. Legislation for improved energy efficiency and the effects on core and shell design will be presented. A case study overview will be presented between materials used and costs for a traditional masonry construction versus a thin adhered lightweight veneer structure. Attendees will gain an overall understanding of some of the new building envelope construction methods and will develop a better understanding of the influence of energy efficient design on construction trends.


11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m: Combinations of Materials - 1 LU AIA Credit

Kevin Melvin, Endicott Clay Products Co.

These days, most buildings include multiple exterior materials – brick, steel, glass, and stone – and systems, such as curtain walls and EIFS. Participants will learn how brick performs with other building materials and how to combine them without creating problems. Brick and mortar, steel, block and stone combinations will be discussed.
