Building with Masonry is a four-part e-book that takes a multifaceted look at the technical aspects of designing masonry wall assemblies and restoration of deteriorated masonry buildings. New techniques and products are changing the rules for this age-old construction method. This curated collection of technical articles from Construction Canada explores:


  • why drainage and ventilation planes should be used for adhered masonry walls in order to meet more stringent energy standards;
  • techniques to meet the National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings requirements using the trade-off compliance path when building with masonry;
  • how traditional masonry ties and stacked stone have been incorrectly used in many thin cladding projects; and
  • the removal and replacement of the multi-wythe brick masonry on all four sides of a clock tower in Huntsville, Ont.
