Sculptural Concrete Masonry Veneers - 1 LU/HSW
This course describes both the history and current use of sculptural architectural concrete masonry veneers. Participants will learn the historical evolution and development of sculptural concrete masonry veneers and their current possibilities. The course covers how to design and construct sculptural veneers to address moisture management and crack prevention, and identifies key installation and workmanship considerations. Finally, the course addresses how to use kits of sculptural concrete masonry veneers in combination to build durable, resilient, and environmentally beneficial surfaces that create visually appealing spaces that provide a creative environment for building occupants and visitors.

Learning Objectives:
- Understand the historical use and development of sculptured concrete masonry veneers.

- Learn essential design detailing required to address moisture penetration resistance and structural wall movement issues

- Understand the key installation and workmanship tasks that will assure long term structural, moisture protection, thermal and aesthetic performance

- Learn how to use kits of sculptural concrete masonry veneer units in a combination of shapes, bond patterns and colors to provide interior and exterior spaces that enhance the welfare of occupants and visitors through creative visual appeal, avoidance of coatings (and potential VOC emissions), sound dampening and the use of passive solar thermal mass strategies while using materials that sequester carbon dioxide from ambient air.
