New Construction

concrete masonry unit assemblies


Concrete Masonry is one of the most versatile products and assemblies in the construction industry. It can provide the structural frame of a building, a strong backing for many types of veneer systems, or even be the veneer system itself. 

Used in a single wythe application, concrete masonry can serve as both the structure and finished face of the wall. 

Plus, concrete masonry is durable, provides resiliency for increased fire safety, offers thermal mass for efficient heating and cooling, and much more.
