AIA Course on Flood Protection

It is important for owners and operators to understand the flood risks associated with their properties from both flood frequency and flood water elevation perspectives. Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) may not reflect the current risks of flooding, as increased rainfall intensities and localized street flooding occur more frequently. Therefore, proactive measures should be taken to reduce the impact of flooding on a property.

High-intensity rain events that regularly enter a building or garage can be disruptive and costly, as flooding can lead to lost revenue and operations, repair costs, and loss of patronage. Therefore, it is important to invest in flood protection measures that can significantly reduce flood recovery costs.

This course examines various flood protection approaches and owner needs, and emphasizes the importance of determining the flood resilience of a property to understand the associated costs and risks. By being proactive and investing in flood protection measures, property owners and operators can reduce the impact of flooding on their properties and ultimately save money in the long run.
