August 13, 1:00p ET: Challenges in Low-to Mid-Rise Construction (1LU|HSW)

Steadily loosening building code requirements have made wood-framed construction popular – and more inherently risky than ever before.From the threat of fire to reduced strength to pervasive moisture intrusion, this course will explore the numerous challenges created by wood-framed construction and their root causes in poor detailing, rushed construction and conflicting code requirements.

Join us to learn about the limitations of wood framing and the design tactics – and alternative materials – that can help you build safer, more resilient structures.
