Swierz, Edward J.
The primary intent of this MQP was to identify methods and approaches to affordably and effectively improve residential home design and construction. From the information our team gathered through research, interviews, and experimentation, we designed an affordable structure capable of withstanding 110 mph wind gusts. Ultimately, we hope our design will inspire change in the current residential code by serving as a template for extreme wind design and protect homes and homeowners everywhere from unnecessary damage and destruction.
