Join the Building Enclosure Council for an afternoon workshop with hands-on training at the International Masonry Institute. During the workshop, instructors will review four mock ups focusing on critical tie-ins at windows and parapets, restoration of steel lintels, and steel framed masonry structures. Discussion will also focus on the installation of air and vapor barriers, flashings at openings and roofs, as well as critical tie-in details and transitions between each of the systems. This workshop is Part 2 of a two-part series of workshops focusing on the detailing of critical components of the exterior wall assembly. The focus in Part 2 is on the detailing of critical components of the upper portions of the exterior wall assembly.
Please note that this is a warehouse/workshop facility, so appropriate dress is recommended. While hard hats are not required, PPE (i.e. gloves and safety glasses) will be provided by IMI. No scaffolding will be required for interaction with mock ups. Free parking and light refreshments provided.
Organized by: BEC - Baltimore in conjunction with BEC|DC
