For years, there has been a disconnect between FEMA and NFIP regulations. This division has impacted the insurability once construction has been completed. Flood Risk America has found a solution to identify problems and procure solutions to this matter, as well as educating their clients on how to understand FEMA compliant standards and available grant money for flood mitigation services.

Flood Risk America is using their expertise in guiding architects on understanding flood maps and challenging inaccurate flood zone delineations from FEMA for potential qualifications for LOMA and LOMR submissions. They have patented products that are FEMA compliant and certified for flood insurance credits, helping architects to mitigate problems and build in compliance with NFIP regulations. Flood Risk America is revolutionizing architectural design for flood mitigation and integrating project delivery for the AEC Industry.

Avoid Flood Exposure to Your Elevators and Essential Equipment

Consequences of flooding on elevators and valuable assets can devastate a facility’s ability to function and can also cause loss of business and interruption to both the clients and owners. In various instances, many facilities could not function for long durations because essential equipment was placed in basements, sub-basements, or ground floor levels that flooded. In some cases, components of vital systems were elevated well above the floodwaters, while other elements such as transformers, transfer switches, fuel tanks, pumps, etc., were placed at lower levels, leaving them susceptible to flooding and the elevators and essential equipment in the control rooms and other places were then rendered inoperative.

Our vulnerability assessments provide information and recommendations to improve the functionality of critical facilities by preventing flood exposure to elevators and valuable assets. These assessments describe how essential equipment must be protected from flooding to allow a critical facility to perform its primary function during and after a flood event. Flood Risk America and Flood Risk Canada will help you identify vulnerabilities in essential facility systems and equipment using our comprehensive flood mitigation approach.

·     Reduction to the vulnerability, damage, and disruption of operations during severe

      flood events
