Cavity Wall Design and Construction – We cover the proper design of these long-lasting brick-and-block assemblies, with emphasis on water resistance and crack control. This talk also covers a short history of cavity walls and properties of cavity walls including thermal design, wall tie and anchor requirements. Since workmanship issues have such an impact on performance we discuss materials and installation procedures that promote proper performance. * 1 AIA/CES, HSW Credit
