Wood Construction Applications in Industrial and Warehouse Facilities

October 7, 2020 – 9:00 am - 12:00 pm




Join us at 9 AM EDT

For decades, it has been generally assumed that large industrial facilities consist of steel roof framing and tilt-up concrete walls or exterior metal panels. However, with increased awareness of the monetary and carbon costs associated with building systems and assemblies, some design and construction professionals have refuted this norm, utilizing mass timber and/or wood-frame construction for tilt-up and warehouse projects. This presentation will demonstrate the options for using wood in large industrial facilities, highlighting how it can achieve the same structural and building code performance as conventional construction, while providing the potential for savings in construction time and cost. Topics will include panelized roofs and hybrid systems, material allowances for a range of construction types and resulting fire-resistance ratings, structural design processes for wood tilt-up walls, shear wall and diaphragm detailing strategies, and detailed cost comparisons. Case studies of small-scale and large-scale applications of mass timber tilt-up projects will be included throughout.



Mark DaltonMark A. Dalton, PE, CWI, Panelizes Structures

Prior to first joining the Panelized Structures team in 1996, Mark co-developed the hybrid system while at Vulcraft. He’s been in his current role for over 12 years and has more than 25 years’ experience in the steel joist and roof structure industries. His current focus is safety, specifically OSHA compliance in safety and erection policies, and field crew safety procedures.

Terry MaloneTerry Malone, PE SE, WoodWorks

Terry Malone is a licensed structural engineer in Washington, Oregon and Arizona. Prior to joining WoodWorks, he was a principal in consulting structural engineering firms in Washington and Oregon, conducted third-party structural plan reviews and has served as a faculty member at St. Martin’s College in Lacey, Washington. Terry has over 40 years of wood design experience and has taken an active role as a presenter providing seminars at state and local ICC chapters and professional engineering organizations. Terry is author of The Analysis of Irregular Shaped Structures: Diaphragms and Shear Walls, published by McGraw-Hill and ICC. He is a member of the Structural Engineers’ Association of Arizona and the International Code Council.

Mike BradleyMike Bradley, Beacon Builders

Beacon Builders has completed the first two CLT buildings in Spokane County—an 8,000-sf CrossFit gym/warehouse and a 32,000-sf apartment complex. The company also used CLT to build a high-end luxury vacation home on the banks of the Pend Oreille River. Over the course of these projects, the team learned many hard lessons and developed a system to streamline the design, permitting, procurement, and construction of CLT projects.
