Learn code inspection requirements


The Masonry Society (TMS), in cooperation with Hanley Wood, the Concrete Masonry Association of California and Nevada and the Masonry Institute of America, will present a full day comprehensive course on Special Inspection of Structural Masonry Construction on January 22, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada in conjunction with the World of Masonry/World of Concrete. The seminar is aimed at helping inspectors, testing technicians, engineers and building officials identify and check key quality assurance items on the jobsite.

The seminar uses the International Building Code (IBC) and the MSJC (TMS 402/ACI 530/ASCE 5 & TMS 602/ACI 530.1/ASCE 6) as the primary references and it overviews related ASTM standards and inspection guides.

Attendees will learn code inspection requirements, proper placement of materials, mortar and grout, movement joints, how to determine the compressive strength of masonry, and appropriate severe weather procedures. This is an excellent seminar for those preparing for the ICC/TMS Special Masonry Structural Inspectors Certification Examination.
