This course will try to unravel the mystery of how to design 5-story wood frame residential buildings and 6-story mixed-use projects. It will discuss the Building Code requirements, along with its height and area limitations. The course will also discuss some of the technical challenges of building tall wood frame buildings, including designing for wind and seismic forces; how to control shrinkage; and enhanced fire protection requirements.
