Mid-Rise Design: Optimizing Size, Maximizing Value
Regional Online & In-Person Event (San Francisco, CA)REGISTER
As cities seek increased density as a way to address urban population growth, many building designers and developers are looking to mid-rise wood construction as a cost-effective, code-compliant and sustainable solution. This presentation will cover some of the design considerations associated with mid-rise wood-frame buildings, including how to maximize height and area through the use of sprinklers, open frontage, sloping sites, podiums and mezzanines. Construction types will be reviewed, with an emphasis on opportunities for wood use in types III and V. Attendees can earn 1 AIA/CES HSW LUs, 1 PDH credits or 0.1 ICC credits, per session.
