Architects Are Your First Resource for Resilient Design

On the anniversary of Super Storm Sandy and the heels of this weekend’s nor’easter, remember that the professional services of a licensed architect are your first line of defense in protecting your property against natural disasters.

Before purchase, an architect can assist a buyer in understanding the risks each particular property is exposed to and what possibilities could be considered to improve the situation. As an owner, it is advisable to be proactive by working with an architect long before any emergency situation to build resiliency into the site and building. Architects can develop strategies to reduce the future catastrophe resulting from flooding, high winds, hurricane, tornado, earthquake and other natural disasters for both new and existing structures. After an emergency, a licensed architect can support you by recommending the best way to repair or replace damaged or destroyed property while improving the resilience against future destruction. An architect providing the proper site analysis, design, material specification, and building technology can vastly change the outcome of one neighbor to the next.

Make wise choices. Protect your investment. Hire an Architect.
