Code: 2017WT

Christopher Perego, BASF
Companies throughout the construction industry are challenged to find new craftspeople and leaders that are able to step into the industry and make an immediate contribution. Particularly in Restoration, new entrants lack specific knowledge and skills required by the industry. Traditional education programs do not properly represent career options within construction meaning many young people are never exposed to these opportunities. Without new talent entering the industry, companies struggle to keep up with competitors and often times miss out on opportunities due to workforce constraints. Concrete Preservation Institute’s Field School at Alcatraz provides training and education in concrete repair, historic preservation and mentorship for future leaders and vocational workers in construction. This program will go behind the scenes, following the journey of Field School participants  as they learn about the concrete restoration industry.

Mechanical Anchor Strength in Historic Masonry Materials - 2014FT

Code: 2014FT

Kelly Streeter, Vertical Access
The current lack of codes, guidelines or recommendations for pull‐out and shear values of mechanical anchors in historic masonry materials leaves the design community to improvise the design and specification of these anchors. Guidelines available are most relevant to concrete and brick masonry. Although field‐testing is employed for some projects, more commonly an arbitrary reduction of the ultimate yield values is used when designing these elements for use in natural stone. The creation of a standard or empirical design equation for these values is arduous because, unlike concrete and concrete masonry units, historic building stone units are not manufactured in a controlled environment, and their physical properties such as density and compressive strength vary from quarry to quarry and within quarry strata.
