The Institution’s report responds to the Independent Inquiry into the Construction of Edinburgh Schools, highlighting key aspects of masonry construction and the main responsibilities.

The report covers:

  • The need for effective communication between parties 
     
  • The importance of specifying and documenting the type and location of ties
     
  • Typical details for the excecution of masonry
     
  • A designers' checklist to help convey the necessary information from design to construction
     
  • Where design is carried out by a supplier (for example for shelf angles), the need for proper integration of execution requirements with other construction documentation used on site

To further assist in the correct use of masonry the Institution has recently published an updated version of the manual for the design of plain masonry in building structures to Eurocode 6.
