Coastal Construction - Maintaining the Building

COURSE NO: S01-007
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Coastal Construction - Maintaining the Building
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance on maintaining the building structure and envelope in coastal construction areas.


For maximum performance of a building in a coastal area, the building structure and envelope must not be allowed to deteriorate. Long-term maintenance and repair demands are influenced directly by decisions about design, materials and construction methods during building design and construction. Using fewer durable materials will increase the frequency and cost of required maintenance and repair. The design and detailing of various building systems also significantly influence maintenance and repair demands.


This 1 PDH online course is intended for structural engineers, design and construction personnel and other technical professionals who are involved in coastal construction projects.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding the effects of coastal environment on the building structure and envelope
  • Learning about the building elements that require frequent maintenance
  • Familiarizing with the different design strategies for installing exterior mounted mechanical and electrical equipment for different types of natural hazards
  • Learning some maintenance techniques which are hazard-specific
