As part of the Architecture-Building Construction Science collaborative/tectonic studio, second-year BCS students recently built sample masonry panels.
After researching standard and innovative masonry construction, the students designed, estimated and scheduled work on the masonry panels. The panels were not only a valuable educational experience for the BCS students, but they also helped the architecture students better understand wall section drawings.
The collaboration has continued as the BCS students have redlined the architecture students drawings.
Columbus Brick Company donated 1,000 bricks, a cubic yard of sand and mortar to facilitate the project.
