The Virginia Masonry Association is working diligently to educate decision-makers on the superiority of non-combustible construction. This effort will focus primarily on the use of non-combustible concrete masonry construction in multi-family residential housing such as nursing homes, assisted living facilities and dormitories.
The Virginia Masonry Association is working in conjunction with the Fire Safety Construction Advisory Council and, due to the importance of this major undertaking, the association wishes to involve other masonry associations in the effort.
For more information on the Virginia Masonry Association or its efforts, please contact Marcia Meighan, Executive Director, at (804) 377-2080 or visit www.virginiamasonry.org.
