Regional Online Event – CA-South, AZ, NM

WoodWorks is teaming up with APA – The Engineered Wood Association for this 1-hour webinar.

This presentation will cover some of the design considerations associated with mid-rise wood-frame buildings, including how to maximize height and area through the use of sprinklers, open frontage, sloping sites, podiums and mezzanines. Construction types will be reviewed, with an emphasis on opportunities for wood use in Type III and V construction. Efficient use of engineered wood products such as wood structural panels, glulam, and structural composite lumber in wall, floor and roof assemblies specific to mid-rise construction will also be discussed, providing attendees with a deeper understanding of when and how to specify these framing systems most efficiently.

Attendees can earn 1.0 AIA/CES HSW LUs, 1.0 PDH credits or 0.1 ICC credits
