NEW! Fire Demonstration Video
Wood WORKS! BC has released a new educational video, Fire Performance Demonstration Workshop 2.0 – Understanding fire design: applications. Changes to the NBCC mean new considerations for fire, with Encapsulated Mass Timber Construction (EMTC) in tall buildings as a new construction type in the code. This video provides an overview of a Wood WORKS! BC workshop at the City of Surrey Fire Department Training Facility which demonstrates fire performance with a live burn of three large demonstration boxes, including one of mass timber, and summarizes the learning outcomes essential for understanding taller and larger wood building fire requirements.
