Are You Building a School ... Or a Liability?


Are You Building a School ... Or a Liability? This book focuses on the use of Total Masonry Construction in K-12 publicly funded schools for the purpose of reduced life cycle costs, safety and mold resistance among other benefits.

The guide provides:

  • A general overview of the problems that building cheaper and faster has caused
  • Material and systems used that have not performed well
  • Discussion of the Total Masonry Construction system as the solution
  • Primary topic of the book dispels theperception that masonry costs more and is not economical

Inside you will also find testimonials from four school districts that have specified only Total Masonry Construction in their current and future building plans and why they will never go back.

The book is written by Christopher Huckabee, AIA, President and CEO of Huckabee and Associates, Inc., a respected architectural and construction management firm specializing in school construction, and Kyle Montgomery, Executive Director of the Texas Masonry Council. Reviewed by a diverse Editorial Advisory Committee comprised of industry professionals and academia, this committee enhances the credibility and integrity of the publication.
