Resilient homes

Building guidance for Queensland homes - improving how we prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters

Floods, cyclones, storm tides and bushfires are a part of life for many Queenslanders.

Using resilient building design can significantly reduce the effort and time to return people to their homes and workplaces following these natural disasters.

Resilient design and construction can also reduce long-term costs for home owners associated with disaster damage and insurance premiums.

It not only reduces the physical and financial costs, but also the social and emotional impacts of disasters.

Having a suitable level of insurance is also critical to ensuring you can financially recover from a disaster event.
