When hurricane Ian tore through Florida in September, it left a
trail of destruction—but not at Babcock Ranch, a 2,000-home
development designed to be both sustainable and to withstand the
worst natural disasters. Today on the podcast, we speak to an
engineer who lives in and helped design Babcock Ranch about the
community’s unique features, as well as the growing trend toward
building resiliency and what it could mean for the future of
disaster recovery (1:06).
Then, we debut a new segment on the podcast called “Code Corner,” where NFPA technical experts answer your burning code questions. In the first installment, engineer Shawn Mahoney talks about protection strategies and requirements for atriums (35:58).
