The Number One Civil Engineering Magazine Details Eneref Report on Code For Climate Campaign
The foundation of the Eneref Institute’s Code for Climate campaign is the immense need for more stringent window testing to meet building code requirements and to withstand extreme weather events in light of these changing weather patterns. Strengthening the building envelope of existing structures will prevent damage from climate change and offer other life-safety benefits as well.
Atlantic hurricanes have become significantly more powerful in the last decade and will continue to get stronger. As storm intensities increase due to global warming so too will the damage inflicted on building structures. The growing number of property and casualty insurance claims is just one indicator of changing weather patterns.
