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.
