Disaster Resilient Workshops Underway in Local Communities

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

NRMCA, local affiliate partners and members of the Concrete Joint Sustainability Initiative (CJSI) are working together to present a series of one-day workshops on implementing disaster resilience. By educating decision makers at the local level on the importance of resilient construction, the program promotes the adoption of enhanced codes for both residential and commercial construction to enhance community continuity during disaster events. Relevant topics include: linkage to sustainability, mitigation strategies, voluntarily "code plus" programs, enhanced building code criteria at the state and local level, and concrete systems as solutions to minimize loss of life and property.

The workshops are registered with the AIA and GBCI for six continuing education hours. These workshops were well attended and received by architects, engineers, code officials, educators and industry professionals in Springfield, MO, and Sioux Falls, SD. The remaining schedule for the program is Pewaukee, WI, on May 15; Louisville, KY, on May 17 and Portsmouth, NH, on May 30. Seats are still available for these remaining workshops.
