Modern Timber Design: A Dive into Nail-Laminated Timber & Tall Wood

December 15, 2021 – 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm




This online event begins at 1:00 ET, 12:00 CT, 11:00 MT, 10:00 PT

This seminar will be comprised of 2 presentations:

Nail-Laminated Timber: Compelling Architecture with Modern Timber Design

Part of the family of mass timber products, nail-laminated timber (NLT) is mechanically laminated from dimension lumber to create solid timber panels for floor, roof and wall applications. Based on the NLT Design and Construction Guide, this presentation will explore architectural and engineering topics associated with the use of NLT in modern timber structures. Construction types, code applications, specifications and appearance grades, fire-resistance, acoustics, enclosure, structural gravity and lateral loading will all be discussed, with an emphasis on structures that comply with current code provisions. Project examples will be highlighted to show how these topics have been addressed in modern buildings, and to illustrate the many application and grid possibilities.

New Tall Wood Code Provisions: Understanding Advanced Design Topics

In January 2019, the International Code Council (ICC) approved a set of proposals to allow tall wood buildings as part of the 2021 International Building Code (IBC). Based on these proposals, the 2021 IBC will include three new construction types—Type IV-A, IV-B and IV-C—allowing the use of mass timber or noncombustible materials. These new types are based on the previous Heavy Timber construction type (renamed Type IV-HT) but with additional fire-resistance ratings and levels of required noncombustible protection. This presentation will take a detailed look at the new code provisions and methods of addressing the new requirements. Topics will include tall-wood specific high rise and sprinkler requirements, methods of demonstrating fire-resistance ratings, fire design for penetrations, connections and abutting panels, allowances for exposed timber, exterior walls, concealed spaces and more.
