Mid-Rise and Taller Wood Buildings: The Growing Landscape

Innovative use of wood is changing the skyline. Increasingly, mid-rise wood buildings are rising up among traditional concrete and steel shells as designers and developers recognize timber’s performance capabilities while embracing its vast potential for lower costs, faster installation, and a significantly lighter carbon footprint. Through the use of case studies, this session will showcase recently completed projects that illustrate this trend. Topics will include current code allowances for mid-rise wood buildings, design strategies and environmental performance. Discussion will then shift to taller wood buildings, made possible by emerging research and the development of advanced wood products and technologies. Project examples will be highlighted and design approaches for topics such as fire-resistance, structure and acoustics will be covered.
