In early 2016, the ICC Board of
Directors approved the creation of an ad hoc committee of various stakeholders
from across the country, to explore the building science of tall wood buildings
with the scope being to investigate the feasibility of and take action to
develop code changes for tall wood buildings. Since that time, the Tall Wood
Building (TWB) Ad Hoc Committee has reviewed voluminous materials regarding
tall wood buildings, including results of various testing around the world, as
well as studies domestically in support of the TWB charge to conduct a thorough
review of the science of tall wood buildings. Based on all the research, TWB
developed its own test scenario(s) to substantiate any code change proposals
(testing was carried out at ATF labs); and worked to develop a comprehensive
set of technically-substantiated code changes for consideration during the 2018
Group A code development process. The proposals were submitted in accordance
with ICC regulations and were approved in the fall of 2018. The changes will
take effect for the 2021 International Building Code (IBC).
