Resilient design and construction
Floods, cyclones, storm tides and bushfires are a part of life for many Queenslanders. Using resilient building design improves how we prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters.
The building guidance for Queensland homes suite of documents below promotes resilient design and construction to reduce long-term costs for home owners associated with disaster damage. Resilient design improves how we prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters, and can significantly reduce the effort and time to return people to their homes and workplaces following natural disasters. 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.
