Flooding (In Florida) - If We Fail to Plan, We Plan to Fail
Building beyond the Building Code requirements in Florida is not just a good idea, it is a good investment. Mitigating potential Damage from flooding and other Disasters is a great way to lower Insurance costs and increase property values. In addition, potential benefits of Green Building Certifications such as the FGBC standards may help save money on water & energy bills, offer a healthier indoor air quality, help mitigate for Disasters, and potentially offer a much higher resale value.
