DLNR to host NDPTC's PER-306 HURRIPLAN Hurricane Resilient Community Planning and Building Design

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.
