The Masonry Society is pleased to offer a series of 9 webinars on special inspection of structural masonry, helpful for anyone who is or plans to become a Structural Masonry Special Inspector, or who is otherwise involved with special inspection and testing of masonry. A 10th webinar on Basic Plan Reading will be considered in November depending on the interest of attendees.
Through this series of webinars, speakers will address special inspection duties, masonry materials, construction, and protection items to be observed and verified by special inspections.
