SEAMi Seminar: Masonry- Should We Shelter? - West Michigan

Should We Shelter?

Student Tornado Shelters in the next MBC… or not? Background and discussion on Michigan 2018 Building Code requirements for sheltering.

Did you know that the current Michigan Building Code should have included tornado sheltering requirements for certain school projects in lower Michigan and that those requirements were excluded from the MBC with little public input? Did you know that a similar directive exists in the current considerations for adopting the 2018 IBC as the basis for our next MBC? Do you know what the sheltering requirements are and to what projects they would apply to? Are you familiar with construction solutions for the structure and other aspects of a tornado shelter under the IBC? Would you like to know more about tornado sheltering, discuss concerns and ask questions related to sheltering, share your opinion on sheltering in general and the IBC/MBC provisions specifically? Please join us for an opportunity to attend a brief summary of tornado sheltering requirements and to participate in a discussion period!

MMC Masonry Contractor Technical Program - Testing and Selection of Mortars and Grouts for Masonry

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.

Mix Design & Testing – Nick Popoff & Chad Richard from St Mary’s Cement

Often times, projects are delayed during construction due to test results suggesting non-compliance or additional “destructive” testing is implemented. The 2014 Cement and Concrete Reference Laboratory (CCRL) found that laboratories testing mortars and grouts did it improperly 89% of the time for Masonry and 56% of the time for Grout.

This 2 hour workshop is designed to walk the Mason Contractor, Testing Lab Personnel and/or Architects and Engineers through the minimum requirements of TMS 402/602 and each of the reference Material Specifications.

Cement specifications (ASTM C150, C91, C1329) as well as Hydrated Lime (ASTM C207) will be discussed for Portland Cement and Lime, Masonry Cements and Mortar Cements for use in manufacturing mortar for unit masonry.

The Standard Specification for Mortar for Unit Masonry, ASTM C270 and The Standard Specification for Grout for Masonry, ASTM C476 will be covered for the Property, Proportional and Strength requirements.

The final portion of the presentation will cover the proper use and evaluation of test results from ASTM C780, Standard Test Method for Preconstruction and Construction Evaluation of Mortars for Plain and Reinforced Unit Masonry and ASTM C1019, Standard Test Method for Sampling and Testing Grout.
