Mid-Rise Design & Detailing: Optimizing Size, Maximizing Value

November 16, 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm EST

  • In Person
  • Online
Regional Online & In-Person Event (Richmond, VA)

As cities seek increased density to address urban population growth, many building designers and developers are looking to mid-rise wood construction as a cost-effective, code-compliant and sustainable solution. 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.

We will also discuss common issues and areas of misunderstanding related to exterior walls and their intersection with rated floor assemblies as it pertains to fire resistant detailing.

Attendees can earn 2.0 AIA/CES HSW LUs, 2.0 PDH credits or 0.2 ICC credits
