I've done plenty of masonry site walls, but have only dealt with standard brick as a veneer. Now I'm looking into doing some double layer brick site walls with a reinforced grouted core. Do such walls require brick ties to bond the core with bricks? I couldn't find any information on this in any of my masonry books. Any input is appreciated.
