Building with Masonry: the Initial Cost of Construction

Program Description:

Join us for a Dine and Discover hosted by The Masonry Institute of Iowa

In 2016 a national study was done on the initial cost of construction of a 4-story, 25,000 square feet multi-family structure evaluating six different building materials. The masonry industry in Iowa then had the opportunity to participate in the study locally with costs associated in Des Moines in 2017. Learn about the results of the study and the initial cost to build with masonry. The program then examines the life cycle of a masonry structure including fire rating testing, wind testing and thermal mass. 

Learning Objectives:

1. Understand the initial costs of construction on a multiresidential, multi‐story building.
2. Evaluate E‐119 testing of masonry wall assemblies.
3. Summary of wind missile testing to comply with IBC500.
4. Recognize thermal mass and its relationship of masonry buildings.
