The Fire Demonstration and Alternate Solutions Workshop follows the guidelines and principles as set forth by our two other workshops – ‘Lateral Loads’, and ‘Timber Connections’.  As such, this program incorporates both a classroom lecture setting and an on-site demonstration.

The classroom portion will have technical content presented by several experts on various aspects of fire safety, design of buildings, and will be supported by mini-presentations by exhibitors.

The second day will involve a trip to the Surrey Fire Services testing facility and will feature a live on-site fire demonstration comparing fire responses of several construction assemblies, including a CLT, a light-frame steel and possibly a nail-laminated timber structure, all constructed to the most recent code requirements for fire resistance.
