Another new Brick Brief has recently been published by BIA's Engineering and Research department. Architects and builders will find it helpful to learn more about "Designing Anchored Brick Veneer Above 30 Feet with a Backing of Wood Framing".

This Brick Brief reviews alternative design and detailing options for anchored brick veneer with a proposed height exceeding 30 feet and a backing of wood framing that serves as the main force resisting system for the building. Included are typical approaches to alternative design, differential movement calculations, and typical designs and detailing considerations.

For questions, contact Chip Clark at cclark@bia.org.
