Join us for a comprehensive understanding of the latest adhered masonry veneer design standards and guidelines. As adhered masonry veneer systems have gained popularity in contemporary architectural designs, it is essential to stay up to date with the latest industry standards to ensure safety, performance, and aesthetics. Through in-depth discussions, case studies, and craftworker experiences, you’ll gain the knowledge and skills necessary to incorporate these standards into your architectural projects.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the basic principles and terminology of adhered masonry veneer systems, including the materials, construction methods, and key components involved.
  • Explain industry standards and building codes governing adhered masonry veneer systems, including ASTM, TMS, and local building codes.
  • Apply best practices in adhered masonry veneer design to ensure structural integrity, moisture management, and durability while achieving architectural and aesthetic goals.
  • Identify common challenges and failure points in adhered masonry veneer systems and develop strategies to mitigate risks and ensure long-term performance in architectural projects.
