In the Eye of Irma

The 2012 ASCE code requires Naples, FL to be designed for ultimate 3-sec wind gusts of 160 mph. Irma was well within that number upon landfall. Even with limited historical data, it’s evident that ASCE does a significant amount of research to create their design wind speed contour maps. The code-specified ultimate design wind speeds represent a 7% probability of exceedance in 700-years.

Start With the End in Mind

These maintenance and repair efforts usually require the involvement of a licensed Professional Engineer and/or qualified consultant. This is the first of a series of seasonal articles that will look at the steps BECS takes to assist our clients to develop a program that will successfully identify project needs, the roles of team members involved in the project, and the expected end result of the project.
