Innovative Building Solutions: Exceeding Objectives in Multi-Family Construction

Sharon Roscher, LP

Wood framing continues to grow as the material of choice for multi-family construction. This presentation will discuss innovations in the use of value-added oriented strand board (OSB) products in applications such as optimized fire-rated assemblies and engineered wood siding designed to resist moisture, stress cracks and impact damage. Discussion will focus on applications in Type III and Type V buildings, and opportunities for optimized solutions that offer greater durability at lower cost.
