      Type III Fire-Resistant Design + New Tall Wood Code Provisions – Seattle

      Part I:  Type III Fire-Resistant Design and Detailing: Exterior Walls, Intersections and Balconies A trend toward larger mid-rise wood-frame buildings has more designers seeking information on fire resistant detailing. This presentation will focus on common detailing issues and areas of misunderstanding related to exterior walls and their intersection with rated floor 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.   Part II: New Tall Wood Code Provisions: Understanding Advanced Design Topics In January 2019, the International Code Council (ICC) approved a set of proposals to allow tall wood buildings as part of the 2021 International Building Code (IBC). Based on these proposals, the 2021 IBC will include three new construction types—Type IV-A, IV-B and IV-C—allowing the use of mass timber or noncombustible materials. These new types are based on the previous Heavy Timber construction type (renamed Type IV-HT) but with additional fire-resistance ratings and levels of required noncombustible protection. This presentation will take a detailed look at the new code provisions and methods of addressing the new requirements. Topics will include tall-wood specific high rise and sprinkler requirements, methods of demonstrating fire-resistance ratings, fire design for penetrations, connections and abutting panels, allowances for exposed timber, exterior walls, concealed spaces and more.   Attendees will qualify for 2 AIA/CES HSW LUs, 2 PDH credits or 0.2 ICC credits.
