Tall Timber Buildings: The U.S. Approach

Are you aware of the code changes and new height capabilities for timber buildings?  

Due to a number of reasons there is a growing interest in expanding the use of wood construction in today’s built environment. Recent changes to the US building and fire codes will permit the use of timber construction in all occupancy types to greater heights and areas. 

This webinar will discuss recent research efforts involving mass timber construction and the code changes that resulted in these increased heights and areas.
