Webinar – Enclosure Design for Mass Timber Buildings
November 11, 2020 – 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Larger and taller mass timber buildings are becoming common in North America. These buildings typically utilize cross-laminated timber or nail-laminated timber panels, glulam beams and columns, and new engineered timber components to meet the structural and fire requirements associated with greater heights. With these larger wood structures and heavier timber components comes the need for efficient building enclosure assemblies that can be installed quickly on tight sites and are in many cases new and unique to the industry. Prefabricated building enclosure elements are now also commonly used. This presentation shares guidance on building enclosure design and detailing best practices for mass timber buildings. It includes case studies and lessons learned from the design, construction, and monitoring of enclosures for recently completed projects.
