August 13, 2014 – 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm




Join at 10 am Pacific, 11 am Mountain, 12 pm Central, 1 pm Eastern

This presentation highlights guidelines for navigating the maze of non-structural provisions in the current building code governing multi-story wood-frame buildings.  Topics will include the appropriate path for a code study, whether it’s a multi-residential, commercial or mixed-use all-wood building, a Type I podium building utilizing the special provisions of section 510.2 or a five/six-story residential building of Type IIIA construction.
