Mid-Rise Design: Opportunity and Implementation

As increases in urban density become necessary to address growing populations, many building designers and developers are leveraging wood’s ability to achieve multiple, simultaneous objectives. Wood is a code-compliant solution to the challenge of how to cost-effectively increase density while creating vibrant and sustainable communities. Yet many familiar with the design of two- to four-story wood structures are not aware that the International Building Code allows five stories and more of wood-frame construction for residential uses such as student, senior and affordable housing, and for business, mercantile and military occupancies. Through an overview of design, detailing, and construction considerations, this presentation is intended to give architects and engineers the confidence to break into this growing market segment. Heights and areas will be discussed, including allowable increases, as will fire-resistive design, detailing for performance, shrinkage, structural framing, acoustics, and fire-rated assemblies.
