HURRIPLAN July 21 - July 22

Thank you to Dennis Hwang and Dean Sakamoto leading the July 21-22 HURRIPLAN Resilient Building Design for Coastal Communities course. 

HURRIPLAN is a two-day performance-level course that provides professionals with the training necessary to integrate resilient community planning and building design strategies with civic commercial projects located in hurricane-prone areas.  In addition to discussing existing regulations, this course featured best practices that may increase community shelter capacity while addressing design concerns such as sustainability, accessibility, architectural aesthetics, and regional culture.

SHADE interns, architects, civil engineers, structural engineers, planners, and others participated in this course, which not only brought variety to the discussion, but also different opinions and ideas as well.  

Special thanks to the Lyon Associates, NDPTC and Waipahu High School.
