Acoustic performance

Mid-rise and hi-rise wood buildings and acoustic performance

Simultaneous Interpretation into English and French

Thursday, September 14 – 2 pm – 5:10 pm

The construction of multi-storey buildings requires a specific and very cutting-edge approach toward acoustic solutions in order to guarantee users’ comfort. Over and above the noise factor, structure-related vibration phenomena must also be taken into account. The Acoustics Workshop will provide an opportunity to discuss these various issues as well as share knowledge and experience with European specialists in the field.

Fire Safety

Mid-rise and hi-rise wood buildings and fire safety

Simultaneous Interpretation into English and French

Thursday, September 14 – 2:00 pm – 5:10 pm<

With such a sensitive topic, this workshop will provide an opportunity to reap the benefits of feedback from experience gained by international specialists in the field (Europe, North America, Asia, and Oceania). In particular, topics related to the implementation of sprinkler systems will be addressed: What’s the minimum number of storeys required to install sprinkler systems? What are the risks of remoisturizing of wooden structures? What are the maintenance costs?
Issues due to the presence of balconies and the related risks of fire spread on buildings facades will also be discussed at this workshop. And lastly, fire resistance, in particular the state-of-the-art solutions REI 90 or even REI 120 for floor/wall connections, will be the third focus of this workshop.

Seismic

Mid-rise and hi-rise wood buildings and Seismic risk prevention

Simultaneous Interpretation into English and French

Thursday, September 14 – 2:00 pm – 5:10 pm

The seismic issue concerns many countries, including most of those who are developing midrise and tall wood building construction. France, Italy, New Zealand and the United States, among others, are in this situation, and engineering specialists and experts in those countries are working on simulations, dimensioning and experimental work to evaluate the behaviour of multi-storey wood structures.
This workshop will be an opportunity to showcase the work carried out, share the results and build on knowledge and experiences. Assembly techniques and multi-material associations will be discussed and developed as they play a key role in building seismic resistance.

Seismic test, (only on registration because of limited places)

Friday, September 15, 2017 / 10:00 am

This workshop is designed to showcase—through a seismic test performed on a scale model of an R+2 building—how similarity laws make it possible to go from a ½-scale model to a full-size building. Organized in partnership with Kaufmann & Broad and the Simpson Company, this test will also provide an opportunity to present the latest advances in designing and dimensioning high-rise buildings with regard to seismic constraints.


Sustainable building

Open Space workshop on sustainability indicators

Simultaneous Interpretation into English and French

Thursday, September 14 – 2:00 pm – 5:30 pm

Sustainability includes a huge number of economic, social and environmental aspects. To be relevant and feasible a sustainability assessment should focus on the most important indicators. But what are the most important indicators of sustainability to consider when wood is compared to other materials in buildings and building components? In this interactive workshop we will identify and discuss important sustainability aspects. Our aim is to develop a list of top-priority indicators for sustainability assessments of buildings. The list will be a direct input to the EU SUMFOREST project BenchValue, but it will also be available for use in other applications. This is a chance to have your say and to discuss important sustainability aspects. The number of participants at this workshop is limited, and we will strive at having a broad range of stakeholders and researchers present.
