The Health, Safety and Welfare Benefits of Thin Brick and Thin Brick Wall Systems (1 LU - HSW)

This AIA 1LU HSW course will discuss the advantages of using a thin brick-clad wall system to achieve an authentic kiln-fired brick finish with less impact on the environment and more benefits.

The course will compare thin brick veneer exterior wall systems with a full brick cavity wall, demonstrating the advantages of a thin brick wall when considering health, safety and welfare, including environmental impact and occupants' comfort and well being. The course will also review the different types of thin brick and thin brick wall systems and compare them.

Students will better understand the effects full-face brick and thin brick have on the environment through an in-depth comparison. The analysis will include a discussion on raw materials, manufacturing, transport and installation for both brick finishes.

Understanding the H.S.W. impact wall system options and brick selection has will help participants make informed decisions through the preliminary design and project development stages of construction.
