    Westchester's Modular Apartment Buildings. A growing number of apartment builders/developers are opting for modular construction. For many years, we've been perfecting the art of designing and building prefab apartments for modern urban dwellers. Westchester is a leader in the design and construction of new modular apartment developments. Although wood construction does not currently meet code US for the 7 story addition, the report discusses the research regarding taller wood buildings and the use of wood in taller buildings in other countries. A purpose of the report was to discover whether or not a wood addition would be feasible in the case of Georgia Ave.

      Great Chicago Fire of , which destroyed thousands of balloon-frame buildings, that brought this lesson long, the city instituted a ban on wood construction .   Wood has long been regarded as a viable material for construction thanks to numerous factors, namely design flexibility, efficiency, and affordability—reasons making it especially popular for smaller housing projects. Add in a smaller carbon footprint than concrete or steel, and wood can also be seen as a much more sustainable choice.

Discuss allowable construction types, occupancies, and building heights and areas for wood-frame mid-rise construction per the International Building Code. Examine a variety of floor-to-exterior wall details for use in wood-frame, Type III construction and discuss code compliance paths and approval rationale for each.

As new developments continue to crop up in Charlotte, N.C., the community is beginning to notice a construction trend: Many of the midrise developments are wood-framed.

Even though the developments are following the proper building codes, concerns have arisen that the wood construction will create faster-burning buildings, which could injure firefighters.

Wood is commonly used in Nordic countries for single-family houses, but is less common in multi-storey apartment Cited by: While sawn timber is the major structural component of domestic housing, some smaller and even larger engineered wood products (EWPs) are also used but there is significant application of EWPs in heavier construction such as multistorey mid-rise apartments, commercial, public and Cited by: 3.

Wood in Architecture - Designing Buildings Wiki - Share your construction industry knowledge. Wood is a versatile and cost-effective material used in a huge variety of applications and situations.

Using modular construction, it is possible to achieve lower costs and faster completion time compared to conventional construction. construction studies have documented the use of wood products, but only highlighted the use of competitive products. Here, we have added additional documentation in the use of competitive materials.

Commercial modular buildings are non-residential structures for which 60% to 90% of the construction takes place in a factory with only the final finishing taking place at the building site.
