Research within the construction industry is ongoing and WOBO was pleased to note the collaboration that has taken place between the American Wood Council and ICC. The focus on mass timber construction and the recognition of cross laminated timber and the provisions within existing and updated IBC codes.
Research within construction is essential but the transition of the learning into the delivery onsite and appropriate inspection is key to safety within the built environment. The work carried out by ICC and the American Wood Council has produced revised documentation and training that focusses on building heights, area, construction design, fire and specialist inspection.
ICC provides an opportunity to train and become certified as a Special Inspector for Tall Mass Timber Buildings
