Samir Mokashi, Principal | Codes Unlimited
In this codes seminar, Samir Mokashi, Principal at Codes Unlimited, will discuss innovative solutions to common code problems for project of varying type and size. In some instances, without the solution that was developed the project may not have gone forward. The key for success in all these cases has been clearly identifying the core problem, then establishing the framework for resolution, followed by a rigorous analysis in support of the proposed solution. The second part of this presentation will be about Mass Timber also called Cross Laminated Timber.Although made of combustible wood materials the products resist fire up to 3 hours and can outperform fire rated steel and concrete structures under direct fire conditions. Mr. Mokashi will share research and recent project examples to walk through what it takes to design a CLT building.
