Rocky Mountain Masonry Systems Guide

In June of 2016 the Northwest Masonry  Institute published the Northwest Edition of the Masonry SYSTEMS Guide, which provided a standardized systems guide of best practices for masonry wall systems design and construction. It is the industry's primary information resource on masonry systems and the first to address the challenges of energy code requirements for continuous installation. The Masonry SYSTEMS Guide is also the industry's primary information resource for architects and general contractors. It contains nine chapters outlining masonry systems, as well as a resource chapter for products appropriate for each system.

For 2017 the Rocky Mountain Masonry Foundation is working on the production of a “Rocky Mountain Masonry Systems Guide”, to be modeled after the Northwest Edition. This design manual will be used to Educate and Promote the use of masonry to the Architectural and design professional’s  in the Rocky Mountain Region; reinforcing RMMI’s leading support for Masonry Design in the
Intermountain States.

Sponsors will receive printed copies of the systems free of charge to distribute to architects, engineers and general contractors that they work with. All RMMI Members will also receive a printed copy of the guide.
