• Research:
    • Understand the seismic performance of hybrid building systems, in which a light wood frame structure is structurally attached to a mass timber core with a ductile connection system, Phase 2
    • Develop high-capacity shear walls with multi-row of nails for mid-rise wood frame buildings.
    • Develop knowledge-based guidelines for enhancing the capacity of shear walls with high safety margins for 5- to 6-storey wood-frame buildings in the context of current CSA O86 standard.
