Upcoming Training: HURRIPLAN Resilient Building Design for Coastal Communities
On August 18 & 19, the DfRR will host HURRIPLAN Resilient Building Design for Coastal Communities Training @ New York City College of Technology in Brooklyn, New York
Of all natural disasters, hurricanes are perhaps the most devastating to the built environment. HURRIPLAN, is a newly developed approach for hurricane resilient community planning and building design. Designing for hurricane hazards and community sheltering also provides the opportunity to deploy sustainable design strategies which enhance the resilience of coastal communities. HURRIPLAN is a two-day performance-level course which provides planning and design professionals with the knowledge and training necessary to design hurricane resilient commercial and institutional buildings. Through lectures and active learning components, existing regulations and beyond-code design guidelines are discussed and implemented. The culmination of the course includes the creation of a site plan and building design of a community safe room in a nearby hurricane-prone community.
Who should take this course? This course is targeted for a broad cross section of professionals involved in emergency management, planners, building and zoning officials, mitigation specialists, developers, engineers, land owners, architects, building managers and owners.
This course in FEMA Certified and is listed in the FEMA National Training and Education Division (NTED) Catalog.
