Mid-Rise Mass Timber: Navigating Construction Type Selection
Regional Online & In-Person Event (San Francisco, CA)
Opportunities for using mass timber construction for new building projects have never been greater now that the International Building Code (IBC) allows up to 18 stories of these materials. However, with expanded code options, selecting the right construction type is crucial to making a project pencil. This course focuses on mid-rise mass timber construction, highlighting examples in the five- to eight-story range—including office, mixed-use, and multi-family projects. Discussion will help to inform decisions on how to incorporate mass timber based on a project’s intended height, area, and occupancies. The presentation will also cover decisions that need to be made early in the design process, including grid layout, approach to achieving fire ratings, and lateral system selection. Attendees can earn 1 AIA/CES HSW LUs, 1 PDH credits or 0.1 ICC credits, per session.
