Fire

Building codes require all building systems to perform to the same level of safety, regardless of material used. Wood-frame construction has a proven safety and performance record for fire protection, and the addition of sprinkler systems, fire-resistance-rated wall and floor/ceiling assemblies, and open spaces around the building can be used to increase the allowable size of wood-frame structures.

Heavy timbers have a particular advantage in a fire because they char on the outside while retaining strength, slowing combustion and allowing time to evacuate the building.
