In this webinar series, we'll focus on practical ways to ensure the success of mid-rise wood-frame projects from the perspective of cost and occupant comfort. Learn detailing and construction techniques that can help you design, engineer and construct quality wood buildings that are also cost effective--from specialists in noise and vibration control, fire and sound detailing, and off-site/modular construction.

Noise and Vibration Control in Wood-Frame Multi-Family Buildings

Scott Harvey, PE, INCE Bd. Cert., Phoenix Noise & Vibration

Learn to avoid common comfort-related pitfalls in wood-frame multi-family projects. Presented by an acoustics and vibration expert, this webinar will cover practical information related to code requirements, acoustical barriers, and high-performing, acoustically-rated wall and floor assemblies. Recommendations to avoid common pitfalls such as flanking paths will be presented along with example projects featuring real-world acoustical issues and solutions. Vibration and associated noise issues related to mechanical equipment will also be addressed, with an emphasis on how to avoid them through proper isolation design.
