Mid-Rise Multi-Family: Exploring Light-Frame and Mass Timber Solutions

February 15 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm PST

  • Online

Regional Online Seminar (West)

This presentation will help designers understand the breadth of considerations associated with mid-rise multi-family buildings for both light-frame wood and mass timber construction. It will begin with a review of occupancies and construction types, emphasizing opportunities for wood use in types III, IV and V construction. Methods for optimizing the design of mid-rise wood buildings will also be explored, including how to maximize a project’s height and area using sprinklers, open frontage, sloping sites, podiums, and mezzanines. Essential detailing practices for multi-family construction, including detailing for fire-resistance ratings, acoustical performance, and shrinkage, will also be reviewed for both light frame and mass timber.
