Upcoming Webinar: Masonry Facade Repair -- Developing an Approach for Success


Masonry facade assessments may be required to comply with local city ordinances, as part of property condition assessments, or to address visible distress and/or water leakage. Repair methodologies for masonry facades can also vary based on the Owner's expectations and financial constraints, collaboration between the contractor and architect/engineer, project schedule, and budget.

In this one-hour webinar, WJE experts Matt Novesky and Rachel Will will discuss effective methodologies for assessment and repair of masonry facades. Through project case studies, the presenters will demonstrate best practices for a successful approach to masonry repair, emphasizing the implementation of a project methodology that establishes general parameters for the project in the investigation and design phases that are refined during construction.

By the end of the presentation, you will be able to:

  • Describe the steps involved in masonry facade assessment and repair projects and why they are important,
  • Identify typical types of distress that occur in masonry facades,
  • Assess the effectiveness of different repair strategies for various types of masonry facades, and
  • Summarize how masonry facade repairs can be successfully implemented within budget and schedule constraints by utilizing a collaborative approach between Owner, Architect/Engineer, and Contractor.

There will be plenty of time for your questions during the presentation. You are also eligible for one American Institute of Architects (AIA) Learning Unit for your participation.
