Many of the world’s lasting vestiges of early civilizations are the concrete components left behind. Concrete masonry can stand up to almost anything humans or nature can dish out, which is why it is still among the smartest materials to use in structures meant to protect occupants and last for generations.

In past issues, we’ve called out the specific fire, wind and water-resistant properties of concrete masonry. Now, we’ll delve into examples of masonry at work--from luxury living to the live-work spaces of fire houses--and discuss how concrete is meeting requirements for comfort and safety while allowing for design flexibility and energy efficiency. Be sure to check out the links to resources and media that help highlight different aspects of the projects or provide valuable continuing education in designing with masonry for public, municipal or multi-housing structures.
