Virtual Nooniversity: New Tall Wood Code Provisions: Advanced Fire Design for Exposed Timber

12:00 PM
Zoom Virtual Meeting | Online Kansas City, MO 64108 Map

This will be a VIRTUAL program held on Zoom.  Log in information will be emailed to attendees two days before the program.

Join Woodworks - Wood Products Council for this program on fire design for exposed timber.

The 2021 International Building Code (IBC) includes a series of changes that significantly expand the opportunities for tall timber structures. Three new construction types—Type IV-A, IV-B and IV-C—will allow the use of mass timber or noncombustible materials in buildings up to 18 stories tall. These new types are based on the previous Heavy Timber construction type (renamed Type IV-HT) but with additional fire-resistance ratings and levels of required noncombustible protection. This presentation will take a detailed look at the new code provisions and methods of addressing requirements for fire resistance and exposed timber. Topics will include allowable building sizes, methods of demonstrating fire-resistance ratings, allowances for exposed timber, and more.

This program is worth 1 HSW .  You must attend the full session in order to get AIA credit.  If you leave the Zoom meeting early, no credit will be reported.
