This course is designed to train participants to effectively use FEMA P-55, Coastal Construction Manual (4th Edition). The course and publication provide a comprehensive approach to planning, siting, designing, constructing, and maintaining homes in the coastal environment. The course contains in-depth descriptions of design, construction, and maintenance practices that, when followed, will increase the durability of residential buildings in the harsh coastal environment and reduce economic losses associated with coastal natural disasters.
• Understand the basic principles of designing in a coastal environment: design premise, design framework, constraints, defining a “successful” building.
• Understand the differences in design requirements and expected performance between coastal construction and inland construction.
• Understand the significance and “lessons” of historical events at the coast.
• Describe minimum requirements and “best practices” for coastal construction.
• Identify coastal hazards at potential building sites and identify where to obtain pertinent information.
• Understand how to calculate design loads and conditions.
• Understand the continuous load path principle.
• Identify siting, design, construction, and maintenance defects that result in vulnerable buildings.
Selection Criteria: The primary audience for this course is engineers and architects. Floodplain managers and building code officials are also encouraged to attend. Hazard mitigation, planning, zoning, public works, and other building officials with building science knowledge and those from the private sector, such as engineering firms, may also apply.
Recommended Prerequisites: Participants should complete IS-0279.a, Introduction to Retrofitting Flood-Prone Residential Buildings; and IS-0386, Introduction to Residential Coastal Construction. Taking these courses should also help potential participants establish whether they have the necessary level of building science knowledge to take the more advanced resident courses.
