Masonry History Integrity: An Urban Conservation Primer by Tom Russack
Based on the innovative Workforce Development/Youthbuild Masonry Preservation program developed by the Abyssinian Development Corporation (ADC) in Harlem, New York City, this manual introduces students to construction, masonry preservation, green technology, building repair and the conservation of the urban environment. Each chapter is built around a particular masonry material, such as mortar, brick, stone, or stucco; or an aspect pertaining to the masonry trade, such as maintenance or green building technology. Developed by ADC, this primer provides guidance for classroom teaching and trades training sessions, and has already been adopted as a text in multiple preservation trades programs. The general overview of construction materials, methods, tools, and basic training activities allows learners to explore the building trades and discover ways to repair aging masonry structures. 

Masonry History Integrity: An Urban Conservation Primer was developed through a grant from the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT) and is available for download at http://ncptt.nps.gov/masonry-history-integrity-an-urban-conservation-primer-2011-08/



Keywords: masonry, training, mortar, brick, stone, stucco, new york, ncptt, nps, youth, trades, education
