  • Architectural Masonry

    This year's architectural masonry sessions promise to span the spectrum from the mitigation of carbon dioxide in the building & construction industry through masonry unit tolerances, joint thicknesses and other important industry standards to designing for moisture protection in masonry walls. Literally, something for every masonry professional to be aware of and do better! Register today to reserve your space and gain valuable in-depth knowledge on:

    • A more sustainable alternative to incumbent concrete curing practices, the mechanisms governing curing via carbonation and the associated envrionmental, manufacturing and product-performance benefits.
    • Common issues regarding tolerances, implications to design and the interplay between the CSA standards.
    • The means and effect of moisture ingress into masonry structures including a discussion of design detail options and practical construction techniques for water-repellent masonry that can be employed by architects and engineers.

  • Architectural Landscape

    With so many regulatory and standards changes in the works, it's more important than ever for landscape design professionals to stay well informed. This year's speakers will fill you in on all the important details surrounding the Design of Public Spaces standards and pending changes to the MOECC Stormwater Management manual, as well as introduce you to exciting new possibilities in retaining wall design.

    Register today to reserve your space and gain valuable in-depth knowledge on:

    • Real world applications of the Design of Public Space standards (DOPS): Which standards apply - DOPs or OBC? Which criteria takes precedence? Real life examples to help clear up the confusion.
    • Onsite demonstration on utilizing stabilized backfill in retaining wall design for enhanced stabilization for the support of traffic barriers, privacy fences and to create building opportunities in areas where it was previously impossible.
    • Real life examples of Low Impact Development practices being incorporated early in the design process to create a holistic approach to stormwater management and stay a step ahead of pending changes to stormwater management regulations.

VENUE

Evergreen Brickworks

Evergreen Brickworks is a former quarry and brick manufacturing site, located in the Don River Valley of Toronto. Having operated for nearly 100 years, the facility provided bricks used to build many well-known Toronto landmarks. Following the factory closure, the quarry has been transformed into a city park, including a series of naturalized ponds, while the buildings have been restored and converted into an environmentally-focussed community and cultural centre by Evergreen, a national charity dedicated to restoring nature in urban environments.
