Construction of residential buildings in coastal zones presents challenges to the designer or builder not usually found in more inland locations. For all coastal residential buildings, these challenges may include the following:
The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) regulations state that for buildings in V- zones, “a registered professional engineer or architect shall develop or review the structural design, specifications and plans for the construction, and shall certify that the design and methods of construction to be used are in accordance with accepted standards of practice” for meeting the provisions of the NFIP regulations regarding buildings in V zones.
This course is based entirely on the Chapter 13 Constructing the Building of the FEMA Publication Coastal Construction Manual (FEMA-55). This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials. You will be quizzed on the subject document in its entirety.
