Centre for the Effective Design of Structures


McMaster University has received a $1 million donation for an endowed chair in masonry design. The research is to help make buildings better and safer. The Martini, Mascarin and George Chair in Masonry Design will help ensure that current and future undergraduate and graduate engineering students are taught cutting-edge masonry design. It will also enable researchers to build on the current body of knowledge for building codes and standards.
