One of the strengths of masonry is that it can provide an economical solution for mitigating disasters, whether fire, wind, hail or other. Resilient design will likely be a hot topic for 2017 as the articles below indicate. How to strengthen existing building codes and improve upon design are among the topics to be considered.
