Webinar Recording: Masonry Facade Repair -- Developing an Approach for Success
View a recording of WJE's recent 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 discuss effective methodologies for assessment and repair of masonry facades. Through project case studies, the presenters 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.
In this webinar, you will:
- 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.
