Will Tomorrow's Cities Be Timber? Exploring Midrise Mass TImber Housing
Includes a Live Event on 08/06/2020 at 2:00 PM (EDT)
In this webinar, learn about additions to the 2021 International Building Code that allow for larger and taller wood buildings. You’ll get an overview of new design and construction considerations for midrise mass timber housing within the context of streamlined project delivery and how they support urban density and more sustainable communities. Variables will include allowable increases, acoustics, and fire-rated assemblies.
Participants in this webinar will:
- Discover how midrise wood‐frame construction meets housing needs while supporting well designed urban growth.
- Identify the construction types, building metrics and fire resistance/protection requirements for timber midrise buildings per the 2021 International Building Code.
- Understand the schedule and cost implications of mass timber structures as supplemented by prefabricated assemblies.
