FLOOD HAZARD AREA CONSTRUCTION
Every land development project has a “Land” and a “Building” component which requires traditional permitting, design and construction services. However, one of the most important impacts facing existing and new development projects has been the adoption and implementation of a continuing stream of new building codes and land permitting regulation changes – many of which are a direct result of the damages from recent record-breaking storms and increasing flood-related events.
PS&S has the fully-integrated resources that can obtain land and building objectives together, along with a fresh and creative approach mandated by the current events of our industry.
A few of the key flood-related aspects to be evaluated for compliance are building and structure design flood elevations; site accessibility; flood proofing and flood-resistant construction; structural and foundation requirements and types; infrastructure resiliency, future insurance impacts, etc.
