Presented by WoodWorks

As mass timber transitions from novelty to mainstream, more architects and engineers are finding they need a full systems understanding of the unique design considerations associated with this type of structure. Intended for those new to mass timber design, or those looking to refresh their design knowledge, this pre-conference workshop will take a step-by-step approach to the practical design and engineering aspects of mass timber buildings. Breakout sessions at the 2022 International Mass Timber Conference will examine specific design and construction topics in depth, and this pre-conference seminar will equip attendees with the baseline experience needed both to expand their knowledge in the main track sessions and start their own mass timber designs. Project examples will be included throughout to highlight and emphasize design solutions implemented on real structures.

Agenda:

Session 1: Introduction & Overview (0.5 hour)

  • Products
  • Systems
  • Projects

Session 2: Code Compliance (1.5 hour)

  • Construction Types
  • Allowable Building Size
  • Tall Wood
  • Fire-Resistance

(15 minute break)
 
Session 3: Structural Design & Layout (1 hour)
