Clay Goodrich | Smart Vent West Region Flood Mitigation Specialist

From Mr. Goodrich’s LinkedIn page: “As a Flood Mitigation Specialist, I provide expertise and product solutions for hazard mitigation, disaster preparedness and floodplain construction design, as well as the impact these solutions have on flood insurance premiums.

As an AIA/ICC Preferred Education Provider I present continuing education programs for CEU/PDH credit for all parties involved in floodplain design, build, and habitation. I consult with a wide variety of professionals, including Architects, Engineers and Code Officials, on how to analyze the role of FEMA and NFIP regulations found in existing IRC/IBC codes. Shedding more light on floodplain design and construction regulations helps developers, communities and property owners mitigate flood risk, lower flood insurance cost and alleviate long term economic loss.”
