Don’t miss this comprehensive, one-day educational event on Wednesday, July 15, 2015 that will discuss the 2015 National Code change permitting wood-frame mid-rise construction. Fire protection, acoustic, structural, and building envelope issues for these buildings will be examined. Learn best practices from mid-rise experienced practitioners from BC, where mid-rise wood frame buildings have been permitted since 2009. Join the workshop to learn the differences between nine-metre and six-storey construction through case studies of realized projects.
The Alberta Mid-rise Opportunity Information workshop will provide up-to-date information for developers, designers, contractors, project managers, government and code officials on the wood-frame mid-rise opportunity.
This is a one-day event with one-hour sessions on the different considerations for six-storey construction. Full details are available at http://wood-works.ca/the-alberta-mid-rise-opportunity-information-workshop/
