Brick Assemblies


Clay brick, placed in skilled hands, can create inspiring structures that last for hundreds of years with little maintenance. 

Since it’s made from the earth with clay and shale and fired to high temperatures, it doesn’t fade like synthetic materials, instead maintaining its appearance over time. 

With a wide array of colors, textures, and shapes, brick provides flexibility for any architectural style.

Installer Certifications and Training

Why settle for anything less than the best when it comes to the installers on your project? BAC craftworkers train throughout their careers to become building enclosure experts and masters of their craft. 

When you want to have confidence that you’re working with qualified, experienced crews on your project, you can specify for well-trained craftworkers.

Here are some of the training, certificate, and certification programs you may want to specify for brick construction. 

Flashing Upgrade Training

Proper flashing is one of your building’s best defenses against moisture. BAC craftworkers stay up-to-date on the latest techniques and building code requirements with IMI’s Flashing Upgrade Training Program.

Adhered Veneer Certificate

Adhered masonry veneers are designed to provide superior moisture management, ventilation, and thermal performance. BAC craftworkers learn about the function, components, and proper installation of adhered veneer in this program.

Air Barrier Installer Certification

Air barriers help prevent air and moisture from entering the building envelope. This course teaches BAC craftworkers how air barrier assemblies function, including how to evaluate materials, substrate conditions, and the continuity of components.
