NRMCA Promotes Resilient Construction to New England Code Officials

Last week, NRMCA Vice President of Sustainability Tien Peng presented the Disaster Resilient Construction Workshop at the Eastern States Building Officials Education Conference in Portsmouth, NH. Approximately 25 building code officials and planners attended the session on resiliency and risk reduction of our infrastructure. The code officials in the New England states are strong supporters of robust structures, having experienced an increase in disaster events including Hurricane Sandy. Peng was invited to speak at the event by Audrey Cline, chairman of the training and education committee for the New Hampshire Building Official Association. Ms. Cline was an organizer of the conference and arranged the education sessions. NRMCA encourages its members to participate in their local professional efforts and offer topics and speakers for education programs.
