From Education for professionals and communities to Flood Insurance and flood consulting, we're here to help. 


We’ve spent years studying the science of flood mitigation and the effects flood waters have on poorly protected structures. In fact, we’re certified to instruct and provide learning credits to Architects, Builders, Certified Floodplain Managers, Code Officials, Engineers, Insurance Agents, Realtors, and Surveyors in many states.

FEMA Tech. Bulletin 1: Requirements for Flood Openings in Foundation Walls and Walls of Enclosures

This Technical Bulletin explains the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) requirements for flood openings in foundation walls and walls of enclosures below elevated buildings in Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs) that are designated as Zone A (A, AE, A1-30, AH, and AO) on Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs). The flood opening requirements are intended to equalize hydrostatic forces (loads or pressure caused by standing or slow-moving water) on walls, thus preventing damage to or collapse of the building.

FEMA Technical Bulletin 3: Non-Residential Floodproofing - Requirements and Certification (TB-3)

Provides guidance on the NFIP regulations concerning watertight construction and the required certification for floodproofed non-residential buildings in Zones A, AE, A1-A30, AR, AO, and AH whose lowest floors are below the Base Flood Elevation (BFE). FEMA TB-3 focuses on Dry Floodproofing techniques such as flood barriers and flood windows.
