Safety - Strength of reinforced cast in place concrete, four hour fire rating, withstands extreme wind loads, very high bullet & blast resistance
Energy Efficiency- Unique design creates total thermal break
Strength- a 12-inch OneStep wall can support over 300,000 pound per LF
The Echelon OneStep Building System combines the beauty of masonry, the strength of reinforced concrete and the energy efficiency of polystyrene insulation into a singular eco-friendly architectural masonry product. The OneStep concrete masonry wall system dramatically simplifies the construction process and reduces the environmental impact of high-performance masonry buildings.
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.

Sustainable design and green building are ever-evolving, with the latest version, LEED v4.1 introduced in 2019.
This course will explore the latest modifications to the LEED standard, with a particular emphasis on masonry compliance and contribution. Developed by LEED expert Christine A. Subasic, P.E., LEED A.P., the course will introduce attendees to sustainable design and provide an overview of the LEED Rating System, and its credit categories, with a particular emphasis on Materials and Resources, as well as covering criteria and considerations used in selecting masonry products for LEED projects.
