5ICCH Program & Abstracts Cover

All the way to the City by the Lake! Treanor Architects’ Julia Manglitz, project manager, and Vance Kelley, principal, recently travelled to Chicago, Illinois to present a paper they co-authored at the 5th International Congress on Construction History.

The International Congress on Construction History takes place every three years with the 5th International Congress on Construction History (5ICCH) being the first held outside of Europe. The first four took place in Madrid, Spain (2003), Cambridge, England (2006), Cottbus, Germany (2009), and Paris, France (2012). At the 5ICCH, 222 sessions were presented by academics and industry professionals from 26 different countries.

In their paper, “Cleverly Concealed: The Truth Behind Victorian Era Butter Joint Running Bond,” Julia and Vance examined the Victorian-era bricklaying method in the United States, specifically the Midwest. The intent of the butter joint running bond method was to showcase façade ornamentation by minimizing the visual effect of mortar joints and using concealed headers to tie the outer wythe of brick to the load bearing walls. Manglitz and Kelley also identified common condition issues, causes and repairs associated with the method that was used on high-style buildings.

“Cleverly Concealed” was published in Volume 2 of the  set of Proceedings of the 5th International Congress on Construction History and is available for purchase through 5ICCH.

ASTM STP Mastheads

Julia Mathias Manglitz, AIA, and K. Vance Kelley, AIA, both of Treanor Architects, will present their technical paper, “Success and Failure in Applying ASTM Standards to the Evaluation and Rehabilitation of Historic Masonry Structures–A Case Study,” at ASTM International’s Symposium on Masonry 2014 in Toronto, Canada later this month.

The paper, co-authored with and Mark Hodges, PE, of Dudley Williams Associates, presents a case study to demonstrate the applicability of ASTM standards during the evaluation and rehabilitation of historic masonry. The case study focuses on the evaluation and repair of an existing structure, Fort Leavenworth’s Grant Hall (Building 52) Clock Tower, and the challenges of applying materials standards and specifications that were developed primarily for new construction.
