A two-part seminar:

Type III Fire-Resistant Design and Detailing: Exterior Walls, Intersections and Balconies

A trend toward larger mid-rise wood-frame buildings has more designers seeking information on fire resistant detailing. This presentation will focus on common detailing issues and areas of misunderstanding related to exterior walls and their intersection with rated floor assemblies. Mid-rise wood-frame opportunities and code-specified building sizes will also be reviewed, followed by discussion of detailing code requirements, code compliance, and rationale for approval with an emphasis on constructability and practicality.

Opportunities for Wood Use in Low-Rise Commercial Buildings

This course is intended for designers who want to learn more about the use of wood-frame construction for low-rise retail, office and restaurant occupancies designed under the International Building Code.   Topics covered include common framing systems and details, paths to code compliance and tall wall design.

Speaker: Ethan Martin, Regional Director, WoodWorks
