Growing interest in mid-rise Type III and Type V projects has led to a focus on cost-effective and buildable detailing strategies that align with code requirements for fire and life safety, acoustical separation and structural performance.

Using durable materials like wood in tandem with an appropriate envelope design can result reduced-cost maintenance and repairs later in a building’s life.

Presented by an architect who has designed many multi-family and mixed-use mid-rise projects, this webinar goes beyond code provisions and focuses on the “how-to” associated with designing and detailing these wood-frame buildings. Architectural design and detailing topics specific to fire and life safety and acoustics will be reviewed at length, including floor-to-wall details, shaft walls, fire walls, and the intersection of two rated assemblies in four- to six-story, Type III and Type V wood structures.
