Frame it Right: Optimizing Size & Framing Efficiency in Mid-Rise Buildings

June 27 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT

  • In Person
  • Online

Regional Online & In-Person Event (Raleigh, NC)

Increasingly, building designers and developers are looking to mid-rise wood construction as a cost-effective and sustainable solution for commercial and multi-family buildings. This presentation will review the allowable construction types, with an emphasis on the opportunities and advantages of using light-frame wood in Types III and V. Presenters will cover design considerations associated with these projects, including how to maximize height and area through the use of sprinklers, open frontage, sloping sites, podiums, and mezzanines. Common framing methods will also be discussed in the context of ensuring that projects are designed to be structurally sound, constructable, and code compliant.
