Modern Masonry with Preblended Mortar

11 a.m.-12 p.m. Eastern

In this course, we will look at the types of mortar available, the process and pitfalls of field mixing versus pre-blended mortar, and the significance of mortar in masonry assemblies.­ Attendees will learn how to:

  • Investigate the differences in various types of mortar and the standards that apply to them.
  • Specify pre-blended mortar for a variety of buildings and with appropriate selections related to specific applications.
  • Identify the durability and performance impacts of mortar in a masonry wall and the ingredients that define its makeup and attributes.
  • Compare the differences between site-mixed and pre-blended masonry mortar.

New Masonry Installation Technology

12:10-1:10 p.m. Eastern

Bricks and blocks have been used for centuries to build timeless structures now we can build them robotically.­ New technology takes masonry construction to the next level - improving the speed and accuracy of construction while promoting creativity and resilient best practices

This session will cover:

  • How a design will go from a CAD file to installation and how this will ensure that the design intent and code standards will be implemented.
  • How robotic technology can install CMUs on a project following construction best practices.
  • How robotically installed CMUs will not sacrifice the quality control standards of traditional masonry.
  • The economic opportunities new technology can offer a project.

New Masonry Cleaning Procedures

­11 a.m.-12 p.m. Eastern, 1 LU/HSW

This course provides useful knowledge that can be used to assure a masonry project's surfaces, exterior or interior, has been properly treated during the final wash-down stage of the project. Learn detail safety and training requirements to properly use masonry cleaners in the field, from a product chemical standpoint, as well as best-labor practices.­

  • Evaluate different cleaning methods commonly used to remove mortar smears from new construction.
  • Learn how to identify and safely remove reaction-based stains without damaging the substrate of surrounding surfaces.
  • How improper cleaning methods, as well as not employing best practice methods during construction can alter the finished look of a new construction project.
  • Ideas on how to treat and collect water used during the wash-down process to be environmentally responsible.

Design Strategies for Architectural Stone Masonry

12:10-1:10 p.m. Eastern, 1 LU/HSW

This course will explore how to effectively design masonry walls using legacy stone products. Attendees will learn the proper design techniques which focus on the prevention of moisture and crack control issues. Additionally, the discussion will emphasize the planning and designing of sound masonry walls using proper architectural components based on industry guidelines and specifications.­
­

  • Gain a better understanding of Indiana Limestone through its history; its inherent performance characteristics have made this the product of choice.
  • Discuss the performance criteria and overall sustainable design options of Architectural Stone Masonry
  • Understand the different manufacturing methods of stone masonry products to offer an economical and aesthetically pleasing weather-resistant exterior stone cladding.­
  • Discuss how stone masonry products offer a fire resistant, and safe component to the exterior envelope.­­
