PDF YouTube SelfStudy Subjects

This presentation takes the mystery out of the 2012 International Building Code (IBC) parameters for wood in commercial non-residential and multi-family residential construction. Topics will include: maximum building sizes through the use of pre-calculated tables for eight multi-story occupancies, with and without frontage and sprinkler increases; establishing required fire resistance; special provisions for pedestal buildings; precautions required for buildings under construction; criteria for finishes, appendages, and other wood features; and the scoping of referenced wood design standards and Chapter 23 provisions. Participants may download a complimentary copy of 2012 Code Conforming Wood Design (CCWD) a new publication of AWC and the International Code Council which will be referenced during the webinar here.
