Our president, Nancy Ludwig FAIA, LEED AP will be participating in the discussion about the changes in the International Building Code (IBC) with regards to the changes allowing height, area and construction type options for mixed-use structures previously not possible.

B67: Climate Resilient Housing Prototypes
Wednesday, Oct. 28 – 3:30 PM to 5 PM

Rising tides have resulted in a new set of FEMA guidelines and maps that now place many developed urban areas within flood zones. Join our associate, Kendra Halliwell AIA, LEED AP, as she participates in a discussion on emerging urban design principles and design trends that guide the design of flood-resilient, multi-family structures.
