Creating Energy Efficient, Air and Moisture Controlled Masonry Construction Systems
Discipline: Codes & Standards
The focus on sustainable construction has re-established masonry systems as strong solutions for improved building performance as related to energy efficiency and indoor air quality. To achieve strong energy efficiency and occupant comfort performance, the design team must integrate the principles of air and moisture prevention with material technology. This seminar will address masonry systems, cavity wall construction and the best practices required to meet sustainable building and LEED requirements. Detailing and proper component understanding will be reviewed in terms of how to achieve improved energy efficiency. Specification language will be addressed relative to improving bidding and workforce performance results.
1. Identify the role of masonry in energy efficient construction including the application of thermal mass for sustainable and LEED certified projects
2. Create a process for incorporating quality assurance guidelines for sustainable masonry projects
3. Examine the components of masonry cavity design that address and improve thermal performance
4. Build a foundation of skills for developing design synergies on LEED buildings using masonry systems
