Mass Timber and Wood-Frame Construction: Design Best Practices

July 14, 2020 – 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


IL-South, IN, KY, OH, MOIL-South, IN, KY, OH, MO,


Join us at 10:00 EDT, 9:00 CDT

Part I: Introduction to Wood: Design Best Practices

This presentation will provide an introductory review of allowable uses and best design practices associated with wood‐frame construction. Design and detailing best practices will be explained to highlight factors that play important roles in the construction process and ultimate building performance. Discussion will also include optimal framing layouts, spacings and spans, truss design considerations, connection detailing and load path continuity.

Part II: Introducing CLT: New Opportunities for Timber Construction

Cross laminated timber (CLT) is an engineered wood building system designed to complement light‐ and heavy‐timber framing options. Because of its high strength and dimensional stability, it can be used as an alternative to concrete, masonry and steel in many building types. This presentation will introduce CLT with a series of project examples that demonstrate its use and associated benefits in a range of applications. Information on manufacturing, specification and code‐related considerations will also be discussed.
