Behind the Brick: Critical Interfaces in a Masonry Wall
Presented by:
Jeremy Douglas 
Hohmann & Barnard

The single largest issue in masonry wall design is the compatibility of various products that must work together to achieve the desired results. This can include air barrier systems, thru-wall flashings, and reinforcement/anchoring systems.

Hohmann & Barnard presents an AIA accredited seminar which will discuss the importance of sourcing all materials from a single supplier as well as designating a single contractor to ensure compatibility of all building processes.

Topics Covered:
• Air/Vapor barrier basics
  o Applications – fluid applied vs. sheet applied products
  o Permeable vs. Non-permeable
• Using anchoring systems successfully with air & vapor barriers
• Advantages/Disadvantages and compatibility of various flashing materials
• Limiting Mold Problems with Moisture Management Systems
• Air ventilation within the cavity

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.
