This American Wood Council presentation is based on a set of new publications summarizing allowable wood use in buildings in accordance with the International Code Council (ICC) 2012 International Building Code® (IBC®). The documents feature an overview of the design flexibilities permitted for wood in commercial construction and should not be considered a replacement for the IBC. However, it should help engineers, architects and building officials better understand how wood can be used in a variety of applications. The CCWD series includes a comprehensive document summarizing wood use in the IBC. A series of eight smaller documents are specific to different use groups such assembly, business, and educational buildings.Learning Objectives:
- Identify building size and use parameters for wood as the primary structural elements
- Identify methods specified by the code for establishing fire resistance of wood assemblies and elements and fire precautions during construction
- Apply special provisions for design of wood structures that involve compartmentalization and sprinkler systems
- Apply code provisions for the non-structural use of wood in buildings, such as for finishes, appendages, siding and trim
This webinar will include the use of the CCWD. Please download this document prior to the start of the webinar. Upon completion, participants will receive a Certificate of Completion which will serve as proof of 0.2 Continuing Education Units (ICC) or its equivalent.
