About Us

Mark Weber, AIA, has been an architect in Chicago for 29 years. He has won numerous AIA awards, has had his work featured in Architectural Digest, and is the inventor of the BlockUp®  system. Mark realized that masonry was losing both its market share and foothold in the Chicagoland market and wanted to find a solution. In response to the changing industry, he created BlockUp, a modern, fast-built rendition of a traditional masonry system.  

Steve Hunt, CSI, CDT, LEED GA has been an architectural masonry representative in the Chicago area since 1992.  He is active with the National Concrete Masonry Association, serving on the Board of Directors, as well as on the Government Affairs Committee and the Fire Safety Promotion Subcommittee.
