Windows and Wood
Two for one CEU Night combining two OPne Hour long presentations:
Pella’s continuing education seminar
“Understanding Window and Door Performance Terms”
Woodworks “Practical, Code-Compliant Detailing for Mid-Rise Wood Structures”.
With an increase in mid-rise wood-frame buildings, more designers are seeking information on code-compliant and constructable detailing. Many are unsure of the code’s requirements for details, specifically at the intersection of rated assemblies and where structure and fire protection meet. This presentation will focus on common detailing issues and areas of misunderstanding—including fire-resistance rating continuity, allowable uses of wood framing in shaft and fire walls, and fire safety principles associated with the intersection of two rated assemblies. Mid-rise wood-frame opportunities and code-specified building sizes will also be reviewed, followed by discussion of detailing code requirements, code compliance, and rationale for approval with an emphasis on constructability and practicality.
All attendees for our Wednesday, January 22, 2020 event will earn (2) HSW credits. A light supper will be served.
