Mitigation

Substantial renovation of existing buildings and new construction usually requires certain flood damage protection requirements.  

Elevating a building, often results in enclosed areas under buildings and below flood levels, where flood vents, water resistant materials and breakaway walls become necessary.   Some commercial properties may opt for floodproofing.
