Seminar Description

Many designers are intimidated by masonry Quality Assurance (QA) requirements, particularly when it comes to developing a program that will be implemented by the masonry contractor's quality control. This web seminar will break down and simplify the significant elements of a masonry QA program and show how the reformatted tables contained in the 2016 Specification for Masonry Structures (TMS 602), adopted by reference into the 2018 International Building Code, can be used by the designer as the basic masonry QA program. When the designer provides a QA program that is understood by the contractor and masonry special inspector, everybody is on the same page and the quality of the installed masonry improves.

After attending this web seminar, participants should be confident that the masonry QA program they prepare will be easily understood and effective when applied in the field.
