This presentation will outline how the prescriptive code changes have helped adoption of mass timber structures as demonstrated through the increasing number of mass timber buildings approved and built. Additionally, the presentation will address how research and fire testing carried out in the US, Canada and globally can be applied as engineering solutions when the prescriptive code is not an option. Specific building case studies will be covered.
