The specter of fire is sometimes summoned as a critique of choosing massive timber elements for modern structures, yet a body of experiential and research-based evidence shows that mass timbers perform well during a fire scenario.
Instead of focusing on what we already know about timber and fire, our next meetup will focus on the current state-of-the-art in fire engineering approaches, codes/jurisdictional requirements and research efforts, and how these fields will continue to evolve.
Please join us alongside an exceptional panel:
Robert Gerard (Senior Engineer, Coffman Engineers)
Tanya Wuertz (Principal Analyst, Code Unlimited)
Erica Fischer (Assistant Professor, Oregon State University)
As always there will light refreshments and a cash bar.
We look forward to seeing you all!
