Type III Fire-Resistant Design & Detailing for Exterior Walls and Shafts

  • In Person

Regional In-Person Seminar (Atlanta, GA)

Type III Fire-Resistant Design and Detailing for Exterior Walls, Shafts, and Intersections

A trend toward larger mid-rise wood-frame buildings increases the need for information on fire-resistant detailing and construction.  This presentation will focus on common detailing issues and areas of misunderstanding related to exterior walls and their intersection with rated floor assemblies, and detailing for elevator, stair, and mechanical shafts. The discussion will focus on fire resistance-rated design parameters and other architectural and structural considerations related to exterior and shaft walls. Mid-rise wood-frame opportunities and code-specified building sizes will be reviewed, followed by a discussion about detailing code requirements, code compliance, and rationale for approval with an emphasis on constructability and practicality.

Please join us after the seminar for a networking lunch from 12:00pm – 1:00pm.
