  • Post-Frame Construction in Low-Rise Commercial Buildings

    1 LU AIA

    The term “post-frame building system” refers to a building characterized by primary structural frames of wood posts as columns and trusses or rafters as roof framing. Roof framing is attached to the posts, either directly or indirectly through girders. Posts are embedded in the soil and supported on isolated footings, or are attached to the top of piers, concrete or masonry walls, or slabs-on-grade. This type of framing system outperforms other building types in any climate or soil condition and is an energy-efficient building method. Take the course.

  • Wood in Buildings: Steps to Durability and Longevity How to Use Wood to Its Full Potential

    1 LU AIA/HSW

    Specifying a building material considers structure, functionality and the aesthetics of the built project and environment. Architects specify wood for many reasons, including cost, availability, ease of construction, thermal performance, aesthetics and design versatility. Research and new product development have only added to the versatility of building with wood. New products enable increased dimensional stability, higher strength-to-weight ratios, and greater long-span capabilities. This program is registered with AIA for 1 HSW hour. Take the course.
