WEBINAR – Code Compliant Fire Resistance Design for Wood Construction

Dennis Richardson, PE, CBO, American Wood Council

Determining the proper code application for wood-frame fire assemblies can be challenging and is often further complicated with increases in a project’s size and scale. In a building environment where the ability to maximize height and area is key to cost effectiveness, designers must understand the gamut of fire protection considerations applicable to mid- and low-rise wood structures. This presentation will include code requirements, compliance options and nuances related to assembly selection for required fire resistance-rated floor/ceiling assemblies, exterior walls, fire barriers, fire partitions, and fire walls. Topics will include distinctions between fire-resistive elements for separation vs. class of construction.

Dennis Richardson, PE, CBO is the West Coast Regional Manager for the American Wood Council (AWC), which produces recognized design standards such as the National Design Specification (NDS) for Wood Construction. He is a professional engineer with over 25 years of building department experience including serving as the Building Official for the cities of: Santa Rosa, Sacramento, San Jose and Salinas. Dennis has several years of private sector structural design experience and has been active on code development efforts including the Balanced Fire Protection / Height and Area Study Group and the California State Fire Marshal Code Adoption Core Committee. Dennis is a Past President of the Peninsula Chapter of ICC.
