TALL WOOD: A Viable Option for Today's Building Designers 12/7 (earn 4 HSW LUs)
Earn 4 HSW LUs! As an 18-story mass timber student housing project nears completion in Canada, the design and approval communities in the United States are asking themselves if tall wood structures can or should be built domestically—and, if yes, how. The motivation for mainstream use of mass timber is extremely compelling, not just for designers and developers who want to advance modern construction, but for cities and states across the US that want to leverage wood’s benefits from sustainability and economic development perspectives. This workshop outlines potential code path options for design and approval teams considering mass timber projects that exceed the prescriptive limits of combustible construction. In particular, it will provide insight on methods for addressing two of the biggest hurdles in tall timber construction: structural and fire life safety provisions of the code. Learn more/Register.
