Builder Education

Since the majority of brick goes into single family housing, BIA makes sure that builders have valuable information about brick in residential applications. Those who have tight time schedules can view helpful nuggets of information on our Youtube channel. We also offer an onsite “Bricklaying Knowledge Program” that was developed by BIA technical and master mason professionals and several collateral pieces in the form of Builder Notes.

Online Videos

For architects who want a quick overview on a specific topic, BIA has 12 videos on our Youtube channel that are specifically geared towards builders.  Lasting up to a minute and a half apiece, they can be accessed from any device with an internet browser at anytime. See the series “Brick Masonry Techniques for Builders."
