FREE MCAA Live Webinar Series: Why Buildings Leak

While every building consists of a unique combination of building envelope components and construction means and methods, many problems observed in newly constructed facilities share common deficiencies that lead to leakage. This presentation will explore some of the more common mistakes made during design and construction, including deficiencies in flashings, claddings, windows and doors, parapets, roofing systems and other commonly leaking conditions.

At the end of the course, the participants will be able to:

  • Identify common sources of leakage in newly constructed facilities
  • Analyze design oversights that may result in discontinuities in the building envelope and what can be done to identify these problems before construction
  • Discuss quality assurance inspection and testing methods that can reduce the potential for leaks and what aspects of the testing are most important to the construction team
  • Evaluate different recommendations for improving common details found in many construction projects to build in redundancy and improved resistance to water penetration

TMS Webinar: Specifying the Right Mortar and Grout for your Projects

REGISTER

After selecting masonry as a system for a project, a designer is faced with many choices of materials. For mortar and grout, one of the key ingredients is cement. With so many cementitious products available in the market, it can be difficult to know which ones are right for your project. It’s therefore essential to have a clear understanding of cement specifications that are referenced in mortar and grout standards. This webinar will review current cementitious materials that are allowed by ASTM mortar (C270) and grout (C476) specifications, provide a description of each type of cement, discuss key properties of mortar and grout, and show how to specify cements for mortar and grout efficiently and effectively.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the similarities and differences between portland cement, blended cement, hydraulic cement, and other cements specific to masonry construction.
  2. Review the cementitious materials and standards that are referenced in ASTM C270 on mortar and C476 on grout.
  3. Review the relevant properties of mortars and grouts and proper quality assurance techniques.
  4. Discuss effective specifications for cements for both mortar and grout.

From The Masonry Society
Sustainability E-News
April 30, 2017

This symposium will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas on current research, both nationally and internationally, regarding building science and the physics of building enclosure performance, with an emphasis on testing and assessment of heat/air/moisture transfer, energy use, and the environment. It will also explore the growing influence of building science on material selection and detailing in both new construction and the adaptive re-use of existing buildings.

For more information on the objectives and abstract submission please visit: http://www.astm.org/E06_D08CFP1018.


FREE MCAA Live Webinar Series: How to Develop and Implement an Effective Quality Control Program

Current code requires development and implementation of a Quality Assurance program developed by the design professional and implemented by the contractor. Quality Assurance is not the same as Quality Control. This program will show the difference between Quality Assurance and Quality Control and offer suggestions on items that should be included in an effective Qualify Control program.

This program will also provide suggestions for an appropriate Quality Control program that addresses overall compliance with the Quality Assurance requirements and conformance to the Quality Control requirements providing for improved aesthetic appearance and structural performance of masonry.
