Cliff Jones went to the Texas State Capitol in Austin, Texas yesterday to attend the 2017 Texas State Collaborative Meeting on resiliency in construction. The Texas State Collaborative meeting was organized and led by the nonprofit Federal Alliance for Safe Homes (FLASH) and included several expert-led case studies and a panel discussion. The 2017 meeting objective was to discuss the damage from Hurricane Harvey and other recent extreme weather events to determine lessons learned that can improve the resiliency of Texas construction with the goal of reducing the impact of similar natural disasters in the future. More information on the meeting can be found in the full agenda here.
