This 90 minute session discusses structural failures observed during storm damage assessments as well as cost-effective above-code recommendations that contribute to improved overall performance in the structural shell of a building. These recommendations focus on good connection details to tie together exterior walls, roofs, and floors and can help builders cost effectively build a safer structure.
As a bonus, this session will also include a walk-through of APA’s Fire-Rated Rim Board Assemblies publication (Form D350). Allowances and requirements for each detail contained within the publication will be discussed along with the differences between load transfer and no-load transfer.
This event is for members of the Alberta New Home Warranty Program and Professional Home Builders Institute students and alumni. Questions? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
