The Evolution of Mid-Rise Design: Increasing Opportunities with Wood

The expanding use of wood-frame construction for mid-rise projects is allowing architects to creatively achieve multiple, simultaneous objectives. Wood can effectively meet code requirements while adding value and enabling the need for increased density in urban environments. Increasingly, wood buildings of five, six and more stories are rising up among traditional concrete and steel shells as designers and developers embrace timber’s vast potential for lower costs, faster installation, and a significantly lighter carbon footprint. Through the use of project examples, this session will illustrate trends in both residential and commercial mid-rise buildings. Topics will include current code allowances that offer opportunities for taller buildings, design strategies for improved building performance and code-compliant options for meeting fire and life safety requirements.
