Join ROCKWOOL™ and our line-up of expert guest speakers Ted Kesik (University of Toronto), Graham Finch (RDH), and Ineke Van Zeeland (CHM) at our Milton, ON plant to discuss building science, mid-rise wood buildings, fire safety, and resilient building design - 4 CEUs
Learning from industry experts Ted Kesik, Graham Finch, and Ineke Van Zeeland this seminar will focus on designing better buildings through building science, fire safety, and resilient building design with a focus on mid-rise wood buildings.
During the course of the day, Ted Kesik will provide a framework for assessing risk and consequences associated with climate change and guidance on how to approach the design of durable and robust buildings that are able to remain resilient and serviceable under extreme conditions. Graham Finch will delve into building science and building enclosures for mid-rise wood buildings and provide building science principles and research to successfully address challenges in real-world case studies as well as identifying appropriate materials and systems. Ineke Van Zeelend will discuss fire safety concepts in the Ontario Building Code in the context of mid-rise wood construction and compare how they differ from noncombustible mid-rise construction.
The event will include a factory tour as well as a live burn!
