Podcast with Shawn Keyes on Key Insights on Mass Timber’s Fire Safety Based on Latest Research

A recent series of tests produced key insights on the fire safety and resilience of mass timber buildings

Listen to BIV‘s editor-in-chief Hayley Woodin Hastings speaking with WoodWorks BC‘s executive director Shawn Keyes, a licensed structural engineer who has pioneered timber projects across Canada discussing the Mass Timber Demonstration Fire Test Program, why it matters.
