Turner on Five Story Wood

October 11, 2012 – On October 10, 2012, Ross Turner, PE, SE, presented a webinar entitled Wood Design Case Study: Five Story Mixed-Use Over Two Story Below-Grade Parking, through SE University, an online provider of continuing education for structural engineers. Ross used case studies to show how Meyer Borgman Johnson has utilized wood framing, along with permanent sheet piling, to achieve a better return on investment for developers. Ross presented the differences between traditional multistory wood design and five story wood design, and reviewed some of the engineering challenges that accompany this building type, as well as how to resolve those challenges. Engineers will also learn more about the types of projects that may benefit from permanent sheet piling foundations.
