Decoding Multifamily

Decoding Multifamily: Let's Talk Low Rise and High Rise Multifamily

Original Dates: April 12 - 13, 2016

This free 2-hour interactive online event discussed, reviewed and decoded the requirements of high rise versus low rise multifamily buildings under Title 24 Part 6. Gina Rodda of Gabel & Associates, LLC, along with her guest speaker Matthew Christie of TRC Solutions, facilitated discussion with participants based on input from them on such relevant questions as: High Rise, Low Rise...What's the difference? How do envelope, lighting and mechanical features change based on their classification? How do you document the requirements of low rise versus high rise buildings for building permit, and for final occupancy permit? What are the challenges of modeling these building types, and how can you overcome them?
