Essential Design & Detailing Aspects of Mid-Rise Wood-Frame Construction

March 18, 2021 – 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm




Join us online at 2:30 PM EDT

As the material of choice for many mid-rise projects, light wood framing is well suited to accomplishing needs that range from economy to energy efficiency, code-compliance, and tenant flexibility. Evolving trends in multi-family and mid-rise construction have created a shift in the aesthetic and programmatic layout of these buildings, enhancing the need for creative structural layouts and detailing strategies. While much of this onus is thought to be on the structural engineer, and the building’s fire and life safety design to be the architect’s domain, there are significant benefits to coordination. This seminar will address topics that structural engineers and architects both need to understand to cost-effectively design and detail mid-rise and mid-rise over podium projects. Discussion will include construction type options and ramifications, detailing for fire, acoustic and structural performance, critical locations such as unit demising walls and assembly intersections, structural design and distribution of lateral forces, wood shrinkage, shaft construction, and more.

Speakers: Terry Pattillo, AIA and Marc Rivard, PE, SE, WoodWorks
