Understanding the Challenges of Mid-Rise Wood Frame Construction
September 2 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Growing demand for mid-rise buildings, including apartments and condominiums, senior living, affordable, and mixed-use commercial/residential developments, creates both challenges and opportunities for building professionals as they work to balance value with performance.
In this session, Forensic Engineer Derek Hodgin from Construction Science & Engineering Inc, will walk through a deep-dive review of understanding the building code changes that allowed mid-rise wood frame construction, and the pressures in the construction industry that can make implementing “best practices” very difficult. Join us for an in-depth look at the risks associated with mid-rise wood construction and understanding the communication breakdowns that happen on real world job sites.
