Watch how the use of MiTek Hardy Frame Cold Formed Steel (CFS) Moment and Picture Frames solutions led to a 4-story multifamily structure being framed in 23 working days. Two months were shaved off the project schedule, which also resulted in financial savings.
Prefabricated wood buildings should be considered when designing and building both multi-family and commercial buildings, as prefabrication is an efficient and sustainable building practice. Prefabricated wood components can help to solve many design and engineering challenges such as material and process efficiency, environmental performance and life safety.
This course will demonstrate the advantages of prefabrication, specifically how it relates to both light wood frame and mass timber construction.
Design teams must integrate building systems to create a high performance building that also enhances the health and wellbeing of occupants. This course will explore how to achieve optimal acoustic performance in wood building systems with proper design of walls and floors/ceilings.
The course will examine acoustical codes, integrating acoustics into sustainable design, construction detailing and case studies where acoustics were prioritized to optimize indoor environmental quality.
Structural Wood Building Systems â€“ Choosing the Right Material for a Sustainable, Safe and Resilient Project (Print Course)
This course examines the key differences between light frame and mass timber systems. We will highlight the applications, code considerations and performance benefits of each system, including fire protection, seismic stability and wind resistance.
In addition, the sustainability and resiliency of both of these systems will be demonstrated through three case studies that feature environmentally sensitive design.
Complying with the Architectural Woodwork Standards can be a challenge for architects and builders. Third-party programs such as the Quality Certification Program, which was founded by AWI, are specifically designed for builders and architects hoping to achieve AWS compliance. This article will discuss how these programs work and how they can be leveraged to better achieve QCP certification and protect all stakeholders in the process.
Five leaders of modular home construction share their informed perspectives on one of the housing industryâ€™s most compelling topics.
