Fire and Sound Detailing for Mid-Rise Wood-Frame Buildings


Growing interest in mid-rise Type III and Type V projects has led to a focus on cost-effective and buildable detailing strategies that align with code requirements for fire and life safety, acoustical separation and structural performance. Presented by an architect who has designed many multi-family and mixed-use mid-rise projects, this webinar goes beyond code provisions and focuses on the “how-to” associated with designing and detailing these wood-frame buildings. Architectural design and detailing topics specific to fire and life safety and acoustics will be reviewed at length, including floor-to-wall details, shaft walls, fire walls, and the intersection of two rated assemblies in four- to six-story, Type III and Type V wood structures.

Jon’s passion for design is driven by a desire to create affordable, environmentally sustainable urban housing. His focus on mixed-use in-city housing complements his interest in working with neighborhoods to design aesthetically pleasing, livable communities. Jon has been with GGLO since 1995, and is certified as a Sustainable Building Advisor and LEED Accredited Professional. In his role as Quality Management Director, he provides assistance to all project teams on issues of constructability, sustainability, and design implementation.
