Mass Timber Construction Webinar: Heights and Areas and Construction Fire Safety (New Mass Timber)

New Mass Timber Construction – Heights and Areas and Construction Fire Safety discusses the changes to the 2021 International Building Code allow for construction of mass timber buildings with larger heights and areas than is currently permitted in Types III, IV, and V construction. This presentation will provide an overview of the allowable heights and areas for the three new types of mass timber construction: Types IV-A, IV-B, and IV-C. Construction fire safety requirements and owner responsibilities related to the fire resistance elements of the building will also be discussed.

Mass Timber Construction Webinar: Background and Overview (New Mass Timber

New Mass Timber Construction – Background and Overview will include background on the ICC Tall Wood Building (TWB) Ad Hoc Committee, which was created in 2016, reviewed voluminous materials regarding tall wood buildings, including results of various testing around the world, as well as studies domestically in support of the TWB charge to conduct a thorough review of the science of tall wood. An overview of the TWB research which developed its own test scenario(s) to substantiate code change proposals (testing was carried out at ATF labs); and worked to develop a comprehensive set of technically-substantiated code changes for consideration during the ICC 2018 Group A code development process. The resulting approved changes to the 2021 International Building Code allow for construction of mass timber buildings with larger heights and areas than is currently permitted in Types III, IV, and V construction.

Mass Timber Construction Webinar: What’s New in 2015/2018 for Mass Timber Construction

Although not defined in the 2015/2018 IBC, this presentation includes an overview of “mass timber” which is any product currently permitted for use in Type IV construction such as cross-laminated timber (CLT), structural composite lumber (SCL), glued laminated timber (glulam), mechanically laminated decking (aka nail-laminated timber, NLT), and large section sawn timbers. This presentation will provide an overview of changes to the 2015 and 2018 International Building Code (IBC) related to mass timber construction. CLT was first incorporated in the 2015 IBC and additional types of SCL were added to Type IV (heavy timber, HT) construction. The 2018 IBC reorganized heavy timber provisions aiding clear application of heavy timber construction requirements while also providing for separate application of code provisions that allow or specify the use of “mass timber“ elements outside of Type IV construction.

Mass Timber Construction Webinar: Intro to Mass Timber Products

This presentation will provide an overview of mass timber which includes any product currently permitted for use in Type IV (heavy timber) construction such as cross-laminated timber (CLT), structural composite lumber (SCL), glued laminated timber (glulam), mechanically laminated decking (aka nail-laminated timber, NLT), and large section sawn timbers. NLT, glulam, SCL, and solid sawn timbers have been adopted in the International Building Code (IBC) and utilized throughout the world for several decades on a wide variety of buildings. CLT was first incorporated in AWC`s 2015 National Design Specification® (NDS®) for Wood Construction as well as ICC’s 2015 International Building Code (IBC). All mass timber products offer sustainable qualities as they are manufactured from a renewable resource and store carbon. Structural and fire protection characteristics of mass timber will be discussed as well as IBC code provisions that allow their specification in both residential and commercial applications for a wide variety of occupancies.
