We have a special reinforced masonry job that is filled with window openings in a masonry walls.  To meet the H/3 and L/3 spacing requirements we will have a masonry wall schedule that has number of walls, but trying to label these just at the small walls between the windows is a bid cumbersome.  Does anyone have a good note, or wording that they use in a typical masonry wall schedule that would tell the contractor to meet this with out adding all of the different wall types?






We usually draw complete wall elevations for all CMU walls and call out rebar on elevations.
You could set up a " Special CMU Walls" schedule or table. List each separate wall on a line with a letter or number similar to a plywood shear wall schedule.
