This technical presentation will review the new OBC provisions which permit 5 and 6 storey wood construction. The background to these new Code provisions will be presented to understand the objectives of this significant Code change. Key Code provisions will be reviewed and analysed to understand the options, limitations, and conditions associated with these new provisions. Key design details will reviewed to understand the complexity of the design and to understand the design solutions that can address these requirements.
Judy Jeske is a Principal, Director of the Code and Life Safety Group and Senior Code Specialist at Morrison Hershfield. Judy was the PM and Senior Code Specialist for the development of the recent Ontario WoodWorks 2015 Reference Guide “Mid-Rise Wood Construction in the Ontario Building Code” and has presented throughout Ontario on this topic.
