Unique Brick Architecture

Current trends in architecture include the desire to reintroduce traditional articulated detailing concepts in a modern way. However, details that once were relatively straightforward to construct in mass masonry walls do not translate directly to contemporary anchored veneer construction.

This course discusses the various types of features that can be incorporated into anchored brick veneer, the limits of the prescriptive limits presented in the Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures (TMS 402), and general detailing concepts to adapt these types of details to anchored brick veneer construction.

At the end of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Summarize the building code requirements for anchored brick veneer and the allowable limits for corbeling
  • Describe the material specifications for brick in these applications and how they differ from traditional anchored brick veneer
  • Determine design elements that require the use of the rational design provisions in the code
  • Identify various design and construction methods used to achieve elements that meet aesthetic, weatherproofing, and structural requirements of the anchored brick veneer.
