Designing With Tile

Presented by Scott Conwell, FAIA, FCSI

International Masonry Institute

Attendees will develop an understanding of the various types of tile, setting methods, system components, and quality assurance methods as outlined in the ANSI A108 standards and the Tile Council of North America (TCNA) Handbook. The program will address design and installation requirements for conventional and large format tile including substrate preparation and floor flatness standards. It will examine ANSI requirements for mortar coverage, grout joint width, allowable lippage, layout and bonding, and other aesthetic and functional criteria. The program will also look at the new standards for thin Gauged Porcelain Tile (GPT) panels, and the recommended specification language for installer qualifications appearing in the TCNA Handbook and MasterSpec.


Scott Conwell has been with IMI for nearly 25 years. An influencer in the tile and stone industry, he sits on various industry committees including TCNA, and has lectured worldwide. He is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects and the Construction Specifications Institute.
