Taking the Guesswork out of Mixed-Use Building Analysis
While mixed-use buildings—which combine multiple occupancy types and/or functions in a single structure—are common, determining how to apply their unique mix of code requirements can be a daunting task. To simplify code analysis associated with these buildings, this presentation covers logical, code-compliant steps for a number of topics, including determining allowable building size, separation needs, detailing requirements, and the application of special provisions. With an emphasis on the use of wood framing in Construction Types III, IV and V, examples, calculations, and details will be presented to demonstrate how to navigate the various code requirements associated with mixed-use buildings while maximizing building size and meeting fire and life safety needs.
Fire-Resistant Design and Detailing: Firewalls, Fire Barriers and Fire Partitions
With an increase in wood-frame buildings, more designers are seeking information on code-compliant and constructible detailing. Many are unsure of the code’s requirements for details, specifically at the intersection of rated assemblies and where structure and fire protection meet. This presentation will focus interior fire-rated assemblies such as firewalls, fire barriers and fire partitions. Discussion will include fire-resistance rating continuity, allowable uses of wood framing in rated assemblies, and allowable penetrations.
