2012 International Building Code Essentials for Wood Construction

This presentation takes the mystery out of the 2012 International Building Code (IBC) parameters for wood in commercial non-residential and multi-family residential construction. Topics will include: maximum building sizes through the use of pre-calculated tables for eight multi-story occupancies, with and without frontage and sprinkler increases; establishing required fire resistance; special provisions for pedestal buildings; precautions required for buildings under construction; criteria for finishes, appendages, and other wood features; and the scoping of referenced wood design standards and Chapter 23 provisions.  Participants may download a complimentary copy of 2012 Code Conforming Wood Design (CCWD) a new publication of AWC and the International Code Council which will be referenced during the webinar, at www.awc.org/codes/ccwdindex.html. NOTE:  This webinar is a repeat of the Code Conforming Wood Design seminar given on March 13 2014, with slight revisions.

Upon completion, participants will be better able to:

  1. Identify building size and use parameters for wood as the primary structural elements.
  2. Identify methods specified by the code for establishing fire resistance of wood assemblies and elements, and fire precautions during construction
  3. Apply special provisions for design of wood structures that involve compartmentalization and sprinkler systems
  4. Apply code provisions for the non-structural use of wood in buildings, such as for finishes, appendages, siding, and trim
  5. Identify the reference standards for the use of wood in a structural application.


Pending ICC approval of the program, eligible attendees will qualify for ICC 0.2 Continuing Education Units (CEU). Certificates of completion will be available for participants within two weeks of the webinar.
