Tuesday, July 24, 2018 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm EDT

Over the course of the presentation, participants will review the evolution of glulam manufacturing and gain an understanding of the versatility offered through 24F-V4 glulam manufactured in framing widths and IJC compatible depth as a means to expand the available options designers have from the EWP product category. Further, participants will be asked to re-evaluate how they define “value engineering” along with where and when they specify custom vs. stock glulam, based on versatility, cost , manufacturing lead time and availability.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Understand the evolution of glulam beam as a means to improve their ability to evaluate the value of utilizing 24F/1.8e as a base design criteria in order to facilitate greater field construction options.
  2. Evaluate the breadth of EWP product combinations available for design & specification in single family residential and multi-family, wood construction project.
  3. Better specify and understand non-brand specific EWP systems for wood construction projects with greater consciousness of total cost of materials.
  4. Acquire greater insight into wood beam product manufacturing capacity, as to acquire a greater understanding of why there is a need to design EWP system with an eye for value and include glulam.
