Tall Mass Timber Buildings & Fire Service Concerns (DES607)

This Course introduces firefighters and fire inspectors to tall mass timber (TMT) buildings, the history of cross laminated timber (CLT), how it is made and its properties. The Course outlines the new code requirements in the International Building Code (IBC) and discusses the extensive fire testing that was conducted. The program addresses specific fire service concerns.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the make-up of the TWB Ad Hoc Committee and the process used to reach consensus on code changes.
  2. Recognize how the new types of construction compare with existing types of construction in the International Building Code and specify the inherent differences.
  3. Understand the process by which the allowable heights, areas, and number of stories permitted for the mass timber types of construction were developed and will be able to utilize the information for building design. 
  4. State the fire resistance requirements for mass timber building elements. Further, they will be able to discuss specific fire department concerns and how the new codes address those concerns.
