With growing interest in taller wood-frame buildings—many with five stories of wood on podiums and with wood-frame mezzanines—there has also been interest in the use of brick veneer at greater heights. There are code-compliant methods for using brick veneer over the entire height of a mid-rise wood-frame structure. This course reviews two approaches to providing code-compliant brick veneer up to 30 feet and above. Both approaches require the use of The Masonry Society document Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures Section 12.2.1, "Alternative design of anchored masonry veneer."
