Join Graham Finch, Principal, Senior Building Science Research Specialist from RDH as he discusses Building Taller With Wood: Understanding Material & Design Choices

Mid- to high-rise wood buildings are attracting interest across North America. However, there are challenges to consider compared to low-rise buildings, such as increased wind and rain loads, more demanding energy code requirements, and unique maintenance and operating considerations. 

Join this session to examine building science principles, research, and case studies in order to build your understanding of key materials, details, and enclosure assemblies. 

In addition, you'll acquire new strategies for creating durable, energy-efficient, and taller wood buildings.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand why mid- and high-rise buildings are becoming more common and what code changes have enabled this shift.
  • Recognize how building science principles and research have been applied to real-world design problems in successful mid- and high-rise wood building projects.
  • Explore both benefits and challenges of engineered materials, such as cross-laminated timber and prefabricated components.
  • Identify appropriate materials for critical control layers, and understand how they work together in mid- and high-rise wood buildings.
