FitzGerald Hosts Seminar on Multi-Story Wood Frame Construction

On Wednesday, April 29th, FitzGerald hosted a group of developers, brokers, and other real estate professionals for a luncheon seminar on Multi-Story Wood Frame Construction and how wood construction can open up new options for developers and builders across Chicagoland.

The presentation featured Archie Landreman, the North Central Regional Director for Woodworks (an initiative of the Wood Products Council). Archie presented a detailed analysis of Type III and V building types and how they are utilized to create structures with 5 stories of wood-frame construction under the International Building Code. Discussion also included examples of various building configurations and site layouts that illustrated common methods for increasing unit density.
