Part I: New Tall Wood Code Provisions: Understanding Advanced Design Topics


In January 2019, the International Code Council (ICC) approved a set of proposals to allow tall wood buildings as part of the 2021 International Building Code (IBC). Based on these proposals, the 2021 IBC will include three new construction types—Type IV-A, IV-B and IV-C—allowing the use of mass timber or noncombustible materials. 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 the new requirements. Topics will include tall-wood specific high rise and sprinkler requirements, methods of demonstrating fire-resistance ratings, fire design for penetrations, connections and abutting panels, allowances for exposed timber, exterior walls, concealed spaces and more.


Part II: Mass Timber Construction Management: Economics, Logistics & Risk Analysis


How do contractors answer the increasing demand for mass timber buildings from architects and ownership groups? Growing this budding industry requires an understanding from both designers and seasoned construction professionals of how to construct efficiently, navigate jurisdictions new to mass timber, and manage the procurement risks to deliver the dream of a new and optimized building system. This session will introduce mass timber products and building systems then consider why some mass timber projects never pass the concept stage, what can mitigate risk and improve financial feasibility, and how the development, architectural, engineering, and construction community can achieve success with mass timber projects of various scales and typologies. Particular emphasis will be given to preconstruction coordination, holistic approaches to costing and scheduling studies, project delivery methods, and how to achieve the highest level of cost efficiency.
