Framed within the objectives of high performance and affordability, a presentation by Scott Nyseth, PE of Stonewood Design, will focus on International Building Code (IBC) provisions and structural challenges associated with designing a podium structure. Opportunities to utilize advanced framing and cross laminated timber (CLT) will also be discussed.
