Marc Alam, B.Eng, EIT, Manager, Codes & Standards – Fire and Acoustics, Canadian Wood Council

This seminar will give an overview of a series of large-scale demonstration fire tests on mass timber structures. This Mass Timber Demonstration Fire Test Project (MTDFTP) includes two separate series of tests: pilot-scale testing conducted in Vancouver Summer 2021, and large-scale testing to be conducted in Ottawa Summer 2022. The objective of the MTDFTP is to support the approval of tall and large mass timber buildings in Canada and encourage the construction of buildings that include mass timber solutions.
