The Architects League of Northern New Jersey invites you to our February membership meeting and online presentation provided by WoodWorks – Wood Product Council.

Offering a mix of both practical and inspirational, this presentation focuses on the use of heavy timber in applications such as offices and schools, as well as civic, industrial, mid-rise/multi-residential and other building types. Included will be a review of non-structural provisions in the International Building Code and a discussion of structural component and connection methods available. Example projects ranging from typical to unique will be used to illustrate the range of modern timber design solutions available and their ability to provide unlimited aesthetic opportunities for almost any building type.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify opportunities available through non-structural provisions of the International Building Code (IBC), including maximum height and area for exposed heavy timber-frame structures. 
  2. Discover the common design elements and connection options for heavy timber framing.
  3. Examine the commonalities and differences of award-winning heavy timber structures.
  4. Become aware of non-traditional uses for heavy timber that offer unique design solutions.

This 1 LU/HSW webinar will be presented via Zoom.
