Hands-On Building Enclosure Workshop 2: June 8, 2017

BEC-Baltimore, in conjunction with BEC-DC, is hosting a seminar at the International Masonry Institute (IMI) in Bowie, MD. During the workshop, instructors will review four mock ups focusing on critical tie-ins at windows and parapets, restoration of steel lintels, and steel framed masonry structures. Discussion will also focus on the installation of air and vapor barriers, flashings at openings and roofs, as well as critical tie-in details and transitions between each of the systems. This workshop is Part 2 of a two-part series of workshops focusing on the detailing of critical components of the exterior wall assembly. The focus in Part 2 is on the detailing of the upper portions of the exterior wall assembly.
