Grace sponsors education program

Cambridge, Mass.-based Grace Construction Products has announced its sponsorship of the Hurricane-Resistant Construction Network (HRN), a sponsor-driven education program produced by Building Media Inc., Seattle. HRN focuses on hurricane- and flood-resistant construction codes and best building practices and targets builders and remodelers of single-family homes in hurricane-affected areas.

HRN offers an online help center—www.hurricaneconstruction.net—that provides building science- and code-related information. HRN also offers its Hurricane-Resistant Construction Guidebook, which includes code-indexed hurricane construction details from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, as well as energy-saving construction details.
