Hi-Tech Housing – Our Capabilities:
Hi-Tech Housing builds to all wind-zones, heat zones and seismic (earthquake zones) established in US and Canadian building codes.
A growing awareness that extreme weather and geological events are becoming more common has led to an interest in “resilient buildings.” These are buildings designed to remain resilient in the face of Nature doing her worst, meaning at least part of the structure remains intact and capable of supporting continued occupancy after an extreme event.
While we are not experts in designing structures for extreme events ourselves, our experience in providing structures for remote and difficult locations has led us to work with architects, engineers and government agencies that are working on such designs.
From special fastening requirements for high wind and seismic loads, to flood survival to off-grid power provisions in the event of lengthy loss of utilities, we are prepared to work with your resilient housing design team.
