With a full day of seminars and an industry showcase, the Southern California Wood Design Symposium will pack an informational punch for architects, engineers, contractors, developers, code officials and anyone interested in wood’s exciting design possibilities. During the day, access wood design experts, informative seminars, technical information from manufacturers, engineering consultants and industry associations, and exhibits featuring a wide range of structural and finishing products.
Recent decades have seen a dramatic change in the type and scale of wood projects. As codes have evolved due to recognition of the fire and life safety, structural, and resilient capabilities of wood-construction, new doors have opened that allow larger and taller wood buildings. Concurrently, advances in the technology behind the production of wood products and components have led to the introduction and increased use of off-site construction and mass timber. This opening plenary will take attendees through the progression of wood construction—from light-frame low-rise, to mid-rise, to mass timber and tall wood. With an emphasis on design topics and code provisions applicable to all these building scales, this session will set the stage for the in-depth technical talks taking place throughout the day.
