Brian Kuhn, P.E. shared the firm’s expertise in the area of mid-rise wood-over-podium construction last week, providing training via a webinar hosted by WoodWorks.
Podium construction—also known as pedestal or platform construction—typically includes multiple stories of wood framing over another construction style. To leverage wood’s cost efficiency, these types of buildings often maximize allowable building size limits with four or five stories of wood framing over one to three stories of steel or concrete. This webinar focused on how to achieve maximum value with podium construction and identified building code compliance and assembly detail issues commonly encountered.
