We're Expanding Our Webinar Series.

During this difficult time, we're sending our well-wishes to you and your families, and sincerely hope that all of you are healthy and safe.


Since so many of us are practicing social distancing, we wanted to provide more opportunities for you to connect with us online. That's why, through the month of April, we'll be offering a new webinar every Tuesday at noon Eastern Time. We hope you'll join us to hear about the latest in masonry, tile, restoration, job site technology, and more. Where possible, we'll incorporate timely information as it relates to our industry during this pandemic. Take a look at our offerings below and register to attend.

Adhered Masonry Veneer Systems - 1 LU/HSW

Tuesday, March 31, 2020 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. EST


Review code minimum and best practice design as well as detailing and installation options for adhered masonry veneer systems. Topics include: material options, substrates, water-resistive barriers, moisture/air/vapor management, energy control, continuous insulation options, movement joints, specifications, job site troubleshooting, and more.

Masonry Movement Joints - 1 LU/HSW

Tuesday, April 7, 2020 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. EST


Learn about the movement characteristics of various types of masonry and how to successfully accommodate those movements to create a crack-free building. We'll analyze different sources of building movement including a material’s temperature changes, moisture changes, and deflection of building elements. Walk away with an understanding of  industry guidelines, proper detailing, and building code requirements.

Restoring Existing and Historic Tile and Terrazzo - 1 LU/HSW

Tuesday, April 14, 2020 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. EST


Ceramic tile and cementitious terrazzo have served both decorative and functional purposes for centuries. These popular floor and wall finishes are not only aesthetic, but durable, resilient, easy to clean, and resistant to mold, bacteria, and chemicals. You'll learn about the manufacture, installation, performance, deterioration, and restoration and repair methods of these materials.

Structural Masonry: How to Get a Fast Start, Speed Up Construction, and Reduce Cost - 1.5 LU/HSW

Tuesday, April 21, 2020 12:00 - 1:30 p.m. EST

Historically, economic downturns create stockpiles of local masonry materials and labor eager to get back to work. This seminar explores how structural masonry can be used in place of materials with longer lead times or limited availability. We'll also discuss design tips for masonry solutions to accelerate the construction process while controlling costs with smart, economical strategies for masonry wall systems.

Technology & Safe Work Environments - 1 LU/HSW

Tuesday, April 28, 2020 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. EST


Our world is quickly changing. Design offices and construction sites aren’t what they used to be. Improvements to the development, design, and construction process are coming from many new technologies. The use of BIM, computational design iterations, drones, wearable tech, IoT, 3D printing, VR, autonomous vehicles, and lift assist devices is becoming more common with each passing day. Learn how these technologies can help mitigate risk, uncertainty, and waste from the initial design through construction.


Critical Points for Tile Design and Installation - 1 LU/HSW

Tuesday, May 5, 2020 12:00 - 1:30 p.m. EST

Learn the most critical elements of a successful tile project, from preliminary design through the finished installation. We'll discover how the evaluation criteria of the Advanced Certifications for Tile Installers (ACT) applies to real projects and case studies, and study the critical requirements of ACT’s specialty areas of large format tile, membranes, mud floors and walls, shower receptors, gauged porcelain tile, and grouts.


These programs meets AIA/CES criteria for 1.0 LU/HSW learning unit, which will be reported directly to AIA.
