Types III, IV and V: Design and Construction Techniques for Mass Timber & Wood-Frame Buildings

February 13, 2020 – 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

 

Portland, ORPortland, OR

$20

A two-part seminar:

Mid-Rise Design: Optimizing Size, Maximizing Value

As cities seek increased density as a way to address urban population growth, many building designers and developers are looking to mid-rise wood construction as a cost-effective, code-compliant and sustainable solution. This presentation will cover some of the design considerations associated with mid-rise wood-frame buildings, including how to maximize height and area through the use of sprinklers, open frontage, sloping sites, podiums and mezzanines. Construction types will be reviewed, with an emphasis on opportunities for wood use in types III and V.

Mass Timber Construction Management: Economics, Logistics & Risk Analysis

How do contractors answer the increasing demand for mass timber buildings from architects and ownership groups? Growing this budding industry requires an understanding from both designers and seasoned construction professionals of how to construct efficiently, navigate jurisdictions new to mass timber, and manage the procurement risks to deliver the dream of a new and optimized building system. This session will introduce mass timber products and building systems then consider why some mass timber projects never pass the concept stage, what can mitigate risk and improve financial feasibility, and how the development, architectural, engineering, and construction community can achieve success with mass timber projects of various scales and typologies. Particular emphasis will be given to preconstruction coordination, holistic approaches to costing and scheduling studies, project delivery methods, and how to achieve the highest level of cost efficiency.
