MCAA Presents Wall Bracing Course in Denver

Words: Dan KamysMCAA Presents Wall Bracing Course in Denver

On Tuesday, May 21, 2013, the Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) hosted the Masonry Wall Bracing Seminar with the Rocky Mountain Masonry Institute (RMMI) in Denver.

The Masonry Wall Bracing Seminar has been developed to provide contractors with the know-how to confidently design and construct bracing for a variety of common masonry structures. This is an opportunity to save your company money by designing your own wall bracing, rather than paying a structural engineer.

Rashod R. Johnson, P.E., taught the course, sponsored by Damian Lang of EZ Grout. The four hour course taught project managers, safety managers, and foremen to understand and implement the OSHA regulation on wall bracing, and the Standard Practice for Bracing Masonry Walls Under Construction. EZ Grout’s Hog Leg system was also demonstrated before and after the class. By the end of the seminar, most of the foremen stated they were much more comfortable erecting masonry wall bracing than before they took the course.

Please contact the MCAA at 800-536-2225 if you would like to host an in-house Masonry Wall Bracing Seminar at your company.
