NY Engineers and Architects Get Lesson on Restoring Masonry Structures
More than 110 New York metro area architects and construction engineers, including some of the top restoration experts in the city, attended two seminars on masonry restoration conducted by Cathedral Stone Products, Inc. at Superstructures Engineers + Architects in New York on July 13.
The AIA-credited seminar provided an overview of options for masonry restoration systems and stabilization systems, including injection mortars and pinning systems, casting systems, as well as surface preparation and cleaning products, and coating systems that allow masonry to breathe so it will not peel or crack. Members of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) who completed the seminar are eligible for one education credit.
Cathedral Stone Products conducts AIA-credited seminars and hands-on workshops for architects, engineers and construction specifiers throughout the year, as well as certification programs for masonry contractors.
