Excellence In Single Wythe Masonry

Watkins hosted Jack Sykes of Oldcastle Building Products for a presentation titled Excellence In Single Wythe Masonry on September 1, 2021.

This one-hour HSW program explores how to properly design single-wythe concrete masonry walls. The rain -screen wall principle is introduced and discussed in detail. Design features to minimize and accommodate various wall movements (thermal, drying shrinkage, etc) are discussed. Methods to insulate single-wythe walls are reviewed and project photos are highlighted to demonstrate single-wythe wall design creativity. Cleaning techniques are also reviewed. This presentation meets AIA requirements for a one-hour Health, Safety and Welfare credit.
