    What does a “masonry-based structure” actually mean?
    Is the base made of masonry? Is the structure of a 9 story building made of masonry? Is the structure based on masonry?
    I’m guessing the structure will be steel or concrete and the building will be masonry faced.

  2. Masonry based means CMU structure. Generally CMU can support buildings up to 12 or 13 floors.

  3. I would like to apply for this building Please advise.
    Thank You
