The NCEES Wood Project is a four-year, five-university sponsored by the U.S. National Science Foundation. The project objective is to develop a perfomance-based seismic design philosophy for mid-rise light-frame wood construction enabling the construction of six and possibly seven story buildings in the U.S. that perform as specified during the design process.
