Learn about the first, solely-dedicated flood testing lab in the U.S. owned and operated by the private sector for producing empirical data that documents the performance of repetitively-inundated traditional building materials assemblies. The purpose is to provide information to enable retention and reuse of traditional materials in retrofit design for historic buildings with approval from FEMA's National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). This is particularly helpful to commissions when considering proposed retrofits that deviate from traditional NFIP options.
