Special Inspection of Structural Masonry Construction Seminar
February 1, 2010
The Masonry Society (TMS) and Hanley Wood will present a full day comprehensive course on Special Inspection of Structural Masonry Construction on February 1, 2010 in Las Vegas, Nevada in conjunction with the World of Masonry/World of Concrete. The seminar is aimed at helping inspectors, testing technicians, engineers and building officials identify and check key quality assurance items on the jobsite. The seminar uses the International Building Code (IBC) and the MSJC (TMS 402/ACI 530/ASCE 5 & TMS 602/ACI 530.1/ASCE 6) as the primary references and it overviews related ASTM standards and inspection guides. Attendees will learn code inspection requirements, proper placement of materials, mortar and grout, flashing, movement joints, how to determine the compressive strength of masonry, and appropriate severe weather procedures. This is an excellent seminar for those preparing for the ICC/TMS Special Masonry Structural Inspectors Certification Examination.
