Fire-Resistant Design and Detailing: Firewalls, Fire Barriers and Fire Partitions With an increase in wood-frame buildings, more designers are seeking information on code-compliant and constructible detailing. Many are unsure of the code’s requirements for details, specifically at the intersection of rated assemblies and where structure and fire protection meet. This presentation will focus interior fire-rated assemblies such as firewalls, fire barriers and fire partitions. Discussion will include fire-resistance rating continuity, allowable uses of wood framing in rated assemblies, and allowable penetrations. CLT Solutions: Addressing Common Design Challenges Now available to North American building designers, cross laminated timber (CLT) offers the structural simplicity needed for cost-effective projects, as well as benefits such as fast installation, reduced waste, improved thermal performance and design versatility. This presentation will cover some of the more challenging aspects of CLT building design, including fire and life safety, lateral and seismic design, acoustic performance and building envelope. Resources available to design and construction professionals, such as the new US CLT Handbook, will also be discussed.
