The Indiana/Kentucky Structural Masonry Coalition is an alliance of masonry organizations working together to encourage the use of structural masonry by providing resources and design support to the engineering community in Indiana and Kentucky.
The Coalition is founded on the belief that one system - masonry - provides the engineer tremendous design flexibility; that structural masonry is a key component to sustainable design; and that the economy of materials realized by the use of structural masonry results in significant cost savings.
The Coalition seeks to be a resource to Indiana/Kentucky engineering community by providing design assistance, technical service, and in some cases project-specific consultation and hands-on training in masonry engineering software. Our collective goal is to help Indiana and Kentucky engineers and architects design buildings that are innovative, meet current code requirements and design objectives while taking full advantage of the efficiencies of structural masonry.
