Education Seminar — West Long Branch, NJ: Continuous Load Path (Structural): Coastal and Flood Construction
NADRA
The focus of the program is building a wood-framed structure to a Continuous Load Path to resist the wind and waves that could happen when a storm such as Superstorm Sandy strikes the coast again. During the program there will be a lot of good information on products and solutions to not only build to the absolute minimum standards of the code, but what solutions worked and will work in the next disaster. There will be a two-hour section focused on flood resistant construction. Because very few decks and porches survived the wind and waves from Sandy, we have a section on building to the ASCE 24-05 Flood Resistant Design and Construction guidelines.
