The rapid growth of mass timber construction in the U.S. has led to a variety of solutions for shaft wall framing. Mass timber buildings can have mass timber shaft walls, light-frame wood shaft walls, or shaft walls constructed of a different building material altogether.
WoodWorks will hold a 90 minute Mass Timber Shafts and Shaft Well Solutions for Mass Timber Buildings webinar on December 15th from 1 to 2:30 pm EST.
The prefabricated nature of mass timber shaft walls also makes them a good solution in light-frame projects. This webinar will cover material and detailing options for shaft walls within mass timber buildings as well as mass timber shaft walls in other building types.
Specific emphasis will be on meeting structural demands and fire-resistance rating requirements for various construction types and building heights as demonstrated through case studies of real projects.
Speakers will include:
- Anthony Harvey, PE – WoodWorks
- Jeff Spiritos – Spiritos Properties
- Andy Ruff – Gray Organschi
- Mike Scancarello – Odeh Engineers
- Matt Harwood – Holmes Structures
- Alyson Blair – Holmes Structures
- Chris Groose – Lever Architecture
