The Brick Industry Association (BIA) has published many resources for architects, builders, and designers over the years, but by far, our most popular and relied-upon information has to be our Technical Notes.

The Technical Notes on Brick Construction series contains design, detailing, and construction information based on the latest technical developments in brick masonry. Drawings, photographs, tables, and charts illustrate appropriate topics.

  • There are currently a total of 92 different Technical Notes available
  • Technical Notes receive more than 80,000 views on our website each month
  • Technical Notes have been relied upon for sound technical advice since they began in the early 1960s
All the current editions of the Technical Notes can be downloaded for free as individual PDFs, or they can be ordered as a hard copy set in a three-ring binder through our bookstore.
