Lamina® Stone masonry lays in the same plane as conventional veneer masonry — you don’t have to build a transition, it is the transition. Lamina Stone veneers emulate a stacked stone appearance and make a bold statement. This multi-length stone offers a lot of benefits due to its unique installation and design. The original texture and color choices bring out the best in every project. Artisan Masonry Lamina Stone may be used on the entire façade or just to accentuate certain architectural elements such as wall sections or skirting.
When properly constructed, single-wythe masonry walls offer a myriad of benefits that no other building material can touch from fire to moisture protection, durability to aesthetics, and cost-effective installation This presentation covers how to properly construct a wall using proper design techniques focusing on the prevention of moisture, cracking, and cleaning issues in order to take full advantage of the benefits of masonry construction.
Protecting the building’s envelope from water penetration is critical to the architect and design team. This program addresses the specific detail measures that can contribute to a successfully designed building which will help prevent water penetration.

The recent string of large construction fires across the US has cost billions of dollars in damages to job sites and nearby structures. In this course, learn the root cause of these blazes and how sound design, paired with the use of masonry, can offer fire resistance both during the construction phase and over the life of the building.
The International Energy Construction Code is leading the charge for increasingly stringent energy code requirements across the nation, requiring ongoing adaptation of design strategies.
This course reviews exterior envelope R-Value requirements and masonry wall compliance options in regards to the latest IECC code as well as several competitive building materials. We will review evolving exterior wall R-value requirements, explore the definition and impact of continuous insulation (CI), and present design opportunities for innovative wall systems that meet and exceed IECC performance standards.

Masonry delivers a variety of benefits to occupants and designers alike including being highly environmentally-friendly due to its durability and reduced embodied energy compared to other structural building materials.
This course will discuss ASTM specification classifications, as well as the various texture, pattern and color variations offered by masonry. Additionally, the course will review the environmental contributions that masonry offers the architect including the prevention of moisture and mold in construction projects and protentional LEED credits.
Moisture intrusion is a leading cause of structural damage across all building types, and a leading threat to occupant health and wellbeing.
This presentation will cover masonry solutions that deliver superior moisture control and an environmentally sound structure. We will cover proper flashing and masonry installation strategies, discuss water repellant admixture advances for both block and mortars, and review the advantages of complete masonry systems to mitigate water penetration and provide backup moisture management.
The choice of concrete masonry in a building’s envelope provides a durable and permanent material that will last the life of the building. This program will discuss new masonry and stone products in the market, including large veneer and design options to meet today's trending aesthetic demands.
The specification of concrete masonry in a building’s envelope provides durable and permanent protection from moisture, impact, and fire. It also provides a timeless aesthetic.
This course will discuss new masonry and stone products in the market, including oversized veneers and design options to meet today's trending aesthetic demands. Proper detailing procedures that must be followed for effective moisture prevention and crack control will be expanded in detail.
Manufactured stone veneers have come a long way since their introduction, with modern versions delivering the high performance and timeless aesthetics of natural stone at a fraction of the cost.
This presentation reviews the rising trend and use of manufactured stone veneers (MSV) and advancements in the manufacturing process which make new veneers more durable, easier to install and more aesthetically pleasing and delivers the natural aesthetic of real stone.
