Complete Steel Stud/Masonry Veneer Wall Systems, Performance and Specification
Presented by: 
Dave Kimball 
Senior Technical Specialist 

In today’s high-performance building market, specifying materials that work together as a complete wall system is more critical than ever. Systems can help designers meet new energy codes, reduce costs, and improve building function and sustainability while making the design process faster and simpler. This course will educate participants on the functional components and system attributes of the most common exterior wall system, steel stud with masonry veneer. The course will detail key system components such as continuous and stud cavity insulation, air/water resistive barriers, air sealing practices, masonry wall ties and water drainage/management practices. Key codes and standards will be reviewed to define system interaction and key specification practices to insure wall system designs are consistent with recent advances in building analysis, new code requirements, revised test methods, and a comprehensive, systems approach to wall systems.

While this seminar will be geared towards architects, engineers, construction managers, owners, general contractors, BAC signatory contractors, and anyone interested in masonry is also welcome to join.
