Brick Masonry Restoration

This seminar concentrates specifically on the methods, standards and requirements for successful restoration of brick masonry buildings. The material covers mortar analysis procedures, matching and replicating mortars, masonry unit replacement and brick masonry pointing procedures. In addition, the seminar includes information on restoration standards and preparing specifications for restoration.

Mortar History and Replication

This session focuses on the importance of understanding traditional building methods and properties of historic and contemporary mortars. Performing proper mortar analysis and understanding the original construction techniques are the first step in the selection and specification of appropriate mortar formulations for repointing campaigns.

Historic Restoration of Plaster – Case Study, Chicago Athletic Association

This program looks at the design and renovation of historic plaster walls and ceilings on one of Chicago’s architectural icons, the Chicago Athletic Association. This case study will look at the building's original plaster work in context with its architecture and the unique materials and application techniques of its era. The program will then discuss and show modern restoration techniques used to bring these buildings back to life. The presentation will address unique program requirements for the job such as the plaster's interface with other materials, architectural approval processes, and other complexities of historic restoration. This timeless space was restored within the past three years by BAC plasterers, one of which will be available to answer questions.
