The Moxy Austin-University officially opened this weekend. Not the best time for a hotel grand opening. This is the first Moxy in Texas, and it has a 24 hour Taco Bar.

Is 1010 W. 26th going to be entirely wood-framed? That seems like a death trap for fires. Steel-framed would be better.

Wood framing is treated and designed for fire resistance. Certainly long enough to get to the protected stairwells.

You wouldn't want to stick around in a steel framed structure anyway, as everything else (carpets, furniture, etc. ) is going up around you.

If firefighters are going to run into a burning building to save people, I think they'd prefer a steel frame structure that will hold up for several hours rather than a wood frame structure that will collapse in less than an hour.

Sprinklered buildings with fire treated wood/rated walls aren't going to collapse in an hour.

Heck, in a lot of places you are seeing buildings a lot taller built with heavy timber. Those won't collapse in an hour due to the sprinklers and just the amount of time it would take to burn through enough structural lumber to collapse the building.

That said, once you get to 5 stories and up, it gets pretty close cost wise to just go with cold form steel studs instead of fire treated wood...

This 280 foot tower in Norway, Mjøstårnet, is made entirely from cross-laminated timber and other wood elements apart from the top seven floorplates.

From Wikipedia:

Quote:
Mjøstårnet was designed by Norwegian studio Voll Arkitekter for AB Invest. Timber structures were installed by Norwegian firm Moelven Limtre, including load-bearing structures in glued laminated timber. Cross laminated timber were used for stairwells, elevator shafts and balconies. As the main vertical/lateral structural elements and the floor spanning systems of Mjøstårnet are constructed from timber, the building is considered an all-timber structure. An all-timber structure may include the use of localized non-timber connections between timber elements. It may also include non-timber floors as long as the decks are supported by a primary structure made in timber (resting on timber beams). In Mjøstårnet, concrete slabs were used on the top seven floors in order to handle comfort criteria and acoustics.

Heavy timber is much different than your standard yellow pine. Members are thicker and the wood grain is much tighter it's much more difficult to burn through. Standard construction southern yellow pine can lose its structural integrity pretty quickly.
