Progressive Mandate Climate Adaptation Building Codes
“Why might climate adaptation building codes that become stricter with time be a useful measure?”
The effects of climate change become increasingly intense with each passing year. Whether it be storms, fires, or heat waves, the effects can be clearly seen. And unfortunately, building codes are often set in stone for long periods of time and can’t update as fast as necessary. So how could we use our climate adaptation mindset to solve this? Well, what if we were to implement codes that are set to have their standards updated every year in response to climate destabilization? These Progressive Mandate Climate Adaptation Building Codes can be another tool in the toolbox for making the built environment more sturdy in the future.
