In this two-part webinar recording from RDH’s Mass Timber Enclosure Symposium – New England Region (November 2021), presenter Graham Finch explores the risks and impact of wetting of mass timber during the design and construction phases. Graham describes the evaluation process and recommendations that can help mitigate these risks. He also outlines a three-step process that demonstrates the interconnectedness of assembly selection, exposure risk assessment, and determination of factory-installed and site protection materials in addition to construction phase moisture management measures.
With the aid of excerpts from a real case study in moisture management planning, Graham demonstrates and reinforces session-focused concepts and strategies to help designers, building owners, and construction professionals solidify the process of moisture management planning and decision-making for mass timber projects. This on-demand course consists of the recorded symposium sessions and a knowledge-testing quiz.
