Jefferson County Public Schools Consult RMMI
Jefferson County Public Schools recently instituted a program calling for Rocky Mountain Masonry Institute (RMMI) to be consulted during the plan review and construction inspection stages of all schools containing masonry. In addition, it recently conducted a review of its schools in the planning and development stage to determine how much masonry is being used and whether masonry cavity wall systems can be utilized in designs where lesser systems of veneer over steel studs are being considered.
Kudos to Diane Travis, RMMI Technical Director, for her ongoing work with Jefferson County and other metro area school districts, and to Texas architect Chris Huckabee, who made such a strong case for all-masonry schools when he appeared at the RMMI Masonry Schools Symposium last fall.
