Larger Wood Structures: Practical Design Concepts for Mid-Rise and CLT Practical, Code-Compliant Detailing for Mid-Rise Wood StructuresWith an an increase in mid-rise wood-frame buildings, more designers are seeking information on code-compliant and constructible detailing. Many are unsure of the code’s requirements for details, specifically at the intersection of rated assemblies and where structure and fire protection meet. This presentation will focus on common detailing issues and areas of misunderstanding—including fire-resistance rating continuity, allowable uses of wood framing in shaft and fire walls, and fire safety principles associated with the intersection of two rated assemblies. Mid-rise wood-frame opportunities and code-specified building sizes will also be reviewed, followed by discussion of detailing code requirements, code compliance, and rationale for approval with an emphasis on constructability and practicality.Introducing CLT: New Opportunities for Timber ConstructionCross laminated timber (CLT) is an engineered wood building system designed to complement light- and heavy-timber framing options.

Because of its high strength and dimensional stability, it can be used as an alternative to concrete, masonry and steel in many building types. This presentation will introduce CLT with a series of project examples that demonstrate its use and associated benefits in a range of applications. Information on manufacturing, specification and code-related considerations will also be discussed. Attendees will qualify for 2 AIA/CES HSW LUs, 2 PDH credits or 0.2 ICC credits.
