Base of Wall - Single Wythe Block, Proprietary Flashing/Weeps

International Masonry Institute
Description
IMI Detail 02.010.0313. This detail shows an 8” (nominal) split face concrete masonry (CMU) wall, base of wall condition. A proprietary system of flashing and weeps resides at the bottom of the cells, with mesh inserts to keep mortar from interfering with water exiting the wall through the weeps. Vertical reinforcement overlaps the foundation dowels to achieve sufficient development strength per structural design. Ladder-type horizontal joint reinforcement is placed at 16” o.c. vertically in the wall, or as required. This detail is intended for the use of industry professionals who are competent to evaluate the significance and limitations of the information provided herein. This detail should not be used as the sole guide for masonry design and construction, and IMI disclaims any and all legal responsibility for the consequences of applying the information. #AIA #BAC #bearing #block #brick #bricklayer #cavity #CMU #concrete_masonry #Conwell #development #dowel #dowels #flashing #foundation #green #grout #grouted #highperforming #HJR #IMI #IUBAC #lap #loadbearing #masonry #MDS #mortar #overlap #rebar #reinforced #reinforcement #reinforcing #single_wythe #splice #split_face #structural #sustainability #sustainable #wall #wall_tie #weep_holes #weep_vents #weeps
