Tips for Detailing Masonry Assemblies Based on Recurring Drawing Review Observations
January 26, 2023 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST
Over the years IMI has conducted thousands of masonry assembly drawing and specification reviews for architects, engineers, construction managers, general contractors, and mason contractors. This seminar is a collection recurring observations of construction documents and emerging methods that will aid the attendee in understanding how to develop comprehensive masonry documents to create more functional, durable, constructible, aesthetically pleasing and economical masonry details.
Providing more thorough masonry information in construction documents will aid the masonry contractors generate more inclusive bids, minimize or eliminate requests for information (RFI’s) and changes during construction, and help the design professional establish realistic masonry expectations for their next project.
- Understand how masonry drawings and specifications are coordinated.
- Discover the process for conducting masonry reviews.
- Review some of the more common and recurring masonry detailing mistakes in architectural and structural construction documents.
- Learn how to create comprehensive masonry details and specifications.
