TMS Webinar: What’s New in LEED v4.1

The latest version of LEED, LEED v4.1, was released in early 2019 proved a challenge to many designers and manufacturers. The Materials and Resources credits were particularly problematic. This new webinar explains how LEED v4.1 attempts to address these issues by adding incremental achievement levels and revising the thresholds and criteria in many of the credits.

MMC Masonry Contractor Technical Program - Code vs. Spec WEBINAR

The Michigan Masonry Coalition is presenting a series of Masonry Contractor Technical Programs.  These programs are for you and your staff, to gain a deeper understanding of ASTM Standards and TMS requirements.  The entire series is listed in this PDF.

Code vs. Spec – Scott Walkowicz

Code vs Spec: Did you know that the masonry ‘code’ is actually two documents and that they’re written for different parties to construction? This session looks at the differences between the masonry code and the minimum masonry specification that goes with it. Topics will include things like who each document is written to, what requirements are in each for designers and constructors and why contractors should know both what is required of them and of the project designers.

IMI Webinar Series: Restoring Existing and Historic Tile and Terrazzo

1 LU/HSW

Ceramic tile and cementitious terrazzo have served both decorative and functional purposes for centuries. These popular floor and wall finishes are not only aesthetic, but durable, resilient, easy to clean, and resistant to mold, bacteria, and chemicals. Learn about the manufacture, installation, performance, deterioration, and restoration and repair methods of these materials. Since floor and wall materials typically experience the most wear in a building, maintenance and repair can be different from traditional methods, therefore the emphasis of the discussion will be on long-lasting repair methodologies. Discussion of newer tile setting and finishing methods as well as the evolution of terrazzo material and current industry standards for installation will also be covered.

Learning Objectives:

  • Summarize historical methods of tile and terrazzo setting and finishing and how the materials and installation methods have changed over time.
  • Identify the ways in which these masonry materials are durable, resilient, easy to clean and mold, bacteria and chemical resistant.
  • Investigate how these surfaces can be renewed for a second life cycle and how to meet industry guidelines and standards.
  • Explain and compare durable and long-lasting repair methodologies of these materials.

MIM Meeting the Energy Code FREE Webinar

The Masonry Institute of Michigan (MIM) recently published a NEW Energy Guide! Our message to designers is that all single wythe concrete masonry walls can meet the energy code. MIM is here to assist the design community in getting your projects to comply with the energy code. MIM can quickly help you to arrive to the most economical solution by using the NEW Energy Guide and the NCMA Thermal Calculator.

1 AIA/CES credit HSW; 1 pdh/ceu
This Energy presentation will demonstrate how all single wythe CMU masonry walls can meet the current energy code with either prescriptive or trade-off options. A “new” Guide for Single Wythe CMU Walls Meeting the Energy Code will be introduced and presented.
Learning Objectives
  • Learn about the various concrete masonry units that can be used to design single wythe walls including conventional units, A and H shapes, and specialty units. 
  • Learn the prescriptive requirements in the current energy code (ASHRAE 90.1) for masonry walls in Climate Zones 5, 6 and 7 for semi-heated and heated buildings.
  • Learn about the industry tools available to assist designers in determining R-values and U-factors for various masonry walls including the NCMA Thermal Calculator and NCMA Thermal Catalog.
  • Learn how to use the new “A Guide for Single Wythe CMU Walls Meeting the Energy Code.”
Register Here and you will receive a link emailed to you next week to join the Zoom meeting.
If you have any questions, please contact Phil.

IMI Webinar Series: Structural Masonry: How to Get a Fast Start, Speed Up Construction, and Reduce Cost

1 LU/HSW

Historically, economic downturns create stockpiles of local masonry materials and labor eager to get back to work. This seminar explores how structural masonry can be used in place of materials with longer lead times or limited availability. We’ll also discuss design tips for masonry solutions to accelerate the construction process while controlling costs with smart, economical strategies for masonry wall systems.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review masonry options as the primary structural system at interior and exterior walls for gravity and lateral load resistance.
  • Understand how design decisions impact project cost and speed.
  • Learn specific engineering and architectural design tips to create efficient, cost effective, robust, and beautiful masonry solutions.
  • Explore the many software options for masonry design, including structural design software and BIM-M REVIT tools.

45th Annual Masonry Honor Awards Reception (POSTPONED)

The reception is held to honor works of distinction entered in the Annual Masonry Honor Awards Program by members of AIA Michigan and to bring to public attention outstanding buildings and projects designed by AIA Michigan architects.


IMI Webinar Series: Technology is Changing Our Job Sites. Are You Ready?

1 LU/HSW

Our world is quickly changing. Design offices and construction sites aren’t what they used to be. Improvements to the development, design, and construction process are coming from many new technologies. The use of BIM, computational design iterations, drones, wearable tech, IoT, 3D printing, VR, autonomous vehicles, and lift assist devices is becoming more common with each passing day. Learn how these technologies can help mitigate risk, uncertainty, and waste from the initial design through construction.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify at least 3 technology platforms and how they and how they reduce risk, rework, and waste on job sites
  • Define automation vs innovation as it pertains to construction.
  • Discuss how robotics and 3D printing solutions for the design and construction industry enhance safety and the built environment
  • Survey new wearable technology entering the marketplace
