8 Building Joints and Locations

Joint Locations - AirportA relief joint slices through buildings as if a knife sliced it into sections. In doing so the joint encounters many different systems and materials. Locating joints is an art, sometimes introducing a joint in one location introduces movement in a different location. In complex buildings such as airports, malls and hospitals, there are many wings. At each change in building direction an expansion joint is required. The 8 common building joint locations include:
