Credits: 1 LU, 1 HSW
Sponsored By: Echelon Masonry
Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science
This course looks at all types of masonry walls, and explores the relationship of design to moisture mitigation and energy efficient performance of both exterior and interior masonry and the materials used to achieve the desired outcomes. It also will explore the problems associated with latent defects in masonry construction and propose pre-emptive solutions A variety of actual installations are used as examples of moisture mitigation and energy efficient models.
