Event description

Interior partition walls for non-residential and high-rise residential construction are an US$8 billion market opportunity in Canada and the United States. They represent 150 million m² of wall area where wood currently has less than 10% market share. To approach this market, a new system would need to have an installed cost before finishing of approximately US$5 per ft² or lower, in addition to meeting several code requirements for strength, sound transmission and fire resistance (flame spread and burn through). To be truly transformative, the system would also need to address major trends impacting the building industry including reducing labor, reducing skilled labor, reducing onsite waste, reducing call-backs, and easily recyclable with low environmental impact. A likely market entry point for wood-based interior partition systems may be in taller and larger wood buildings. This webinar describes the fabrication, installation and testing of prototype wood-based interior partition wall designs.
