  Resilient Design Guide HIGH WIND WOOD FRAME CONSTRUCTION EDITION  RESILIENT DESIGN GUIDE  1RESILIENT DESIGN GUIDE The purpose of this Resilient Design Guide is to provide architects, designers or even homeowners the information necessary to make any set of house plans useful for constructing a more wind resilient structure. The guide was developed during the course of a two-day charrette that brought together a cross-section of professionals from across the United States. The charrette allowed participants to tap into diverse knowledge and resources provided by professionals, including academics, architects, community outreach organizations, engineers, homebuilders, insurance professionals, manufacturers, product experts, and other building professionals with practical experience before and after high wind disasters, including hurricanes and tornadoes. The group pooled their knowledge and experience to develop an outline for this guide with the goal to provide not only an overview of the “why,” but the “how to” of resilient wind construction. The authors sincerely appreciate the many dedicated professionals that supported this guide.
