Session D3
Acoustics, Fire, Framing: Wall Innovations
Time & Location 2:15PM - 3:15PM | Room 318A
Jason Warren
SCAFCO Steel Stud Company

This technical presentation on “Improved Construction Methods, Acoustic Solutions, and Fire Wall Design Innovation” will highlight cold-formed steel design considerations and labor saving products that have evolved with the industry. Other innovative products of discussion will be: sound isolations systems such as RC Channel, Sound Isolation Clips, and the SoundGuard Silent Framing System. The fire design discussion centers on Shaftwall framing systems CH, CT and the I-Stud, including new high yield strength design tables that span heights that were previously unobtainable.

Jason Warren works as a designer of cold-formed steel building assemblies, products, and components, helping to offer complimentary value engineering opportunities to contractors, engineers, and architects. He earned his Bachelor of Science in civil engineering with an emphasis in structural design from Boise State University and has vast industry experience with cold-formed steel framing and design. Warren is an active member of the Structural Engineers Association of Washington (SEAW) and the Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute (CFSEI). He is also a member of the American Institute of Architects, and has worked with Western Regional CSI chapters throughout his career.
