There’s a ton of great resources online for aspiring building envelope nerds, much of it available free of charge. In the spirit of better buildings for all of us, I wanted to start sharing some of them here on the blog.
One of the first building envelope educational resources I learned about way back when was the Brick Industry Association (BIA) Tech Notes.
Technical Notes on Brick Construction are FREE bulletins that contain design, detailing, and construction information based on the latest technical developments in brick masonry. Drawings, photographs, tables, and charts illustrate appropriate topics.Technical Notes on Brick Construction
