Mr. John Chrysler, Executive Director for the Masonry Institute of America, will breakdown and simplify the significant elements of a masonry Quality Assurance (QA) program and show how the reformatted tables contained in the 2016 Specification for Masonry Structures (TMS 602), adopted by reference into the 2018 IBC, can be used by the designer as the basic masonry QA program. The quality of the installed masonry improves when the designer provides a QA program that is understood by the contractor and masonry inspector. After this seminar, participants should be confident that the masonry QA program they prepare will be easily understood and effective when applied in the field.

This seminar is designed for architects, engineers, inspectors, and Contractors who are interested in masonry building design and construction. MIH is an AIA/CES provider and offers 4 CES credits for attendance to this class.
