Fire Performance and Alternative Solutions for Wood Structures Workshop

Surrey, BC
March 27-28, 2017

 
Two full days including practical learning and a field trip to view a live fire demonstration!
Dates: March 27th - 28th, 2017 | Time: 8:00am – 5:00pm

The Fire Demonstration and Alternate Solutions Workshop follows the guidelines and principles as set forth by two other popular workshops – ‘Lateral Loads’, and ‘Timber Connections’.  As such, this program incorporates both a classroom lecture setting and an on-site demonstration.

The classroom portion will have technical content presented by several experts on various aspects of fire safety, design of buildings, and will be supported by mini-presentations by exhibitors.

The second day will involve a trip to the Surrey Fire Services testing facility and will feature a live on-site fire demonstration comparing fire responses of several construction assemblies, including a CLT, a light-frame steel and possibly a nail-laminated timber structure, all constructed to the most recent code requirements for fire resistance.
 
This comprehensive program will:
  • examine the current building code’s fire safety strategies;
  • draw from examples of current design and construction practices; and
  • provide valuable insight into proposed legislation pertaining to upcoming code changes.
Find out how timber elements can be used and learn how they fully comply with fire-related building code regulations in both the residential and non-residential market segments.
