Miami is a one of the best tourist destination in Florida and the whole of United States. However, Miami is usually faced with the problem of hurricanes given that it is a beach town. For those who are familiar with the area, disaster management is a must do for those living in the area. Hurricanes that hit Miami leave huge destruction of property. The result is damaged properties worth millions of dollars. One storm experienced in 1992 led to the destruction of property worth $50 billion. However, after the storm, Miami has managed to get back on its feet. The developers in the area are focused on coming up with buildings that can withhold hurricanes.
One prominent real estate specialist in Miami, Florida is Samuel Strauch. Strauch was educated at the Hofstra University in New York. As part of his dedication to the real estate development, Samuel Strauch pursued further education at the Harvard University and the Erasmus University in Rotterdam. Samuel Strauch is the principal and founder of Metrik Real Estate Company. He explains that building regulations in Miami are among the most stringent in the United States. Some regulations require walls, roofs, and other structural features to be fortified. The intention is to create structures that can withstand the strong impact of the hurricanes. Buildings made of glass structures are supposed to use specially reinforced glass that can withstand wind-borne debris.
For new structures, solid concrete pillars, hurricane straps, and Cinder-block masonry are supposed to be used to ensure that the structures can withstand wind and water impact. According to Samuel Strauch, Florida is the only state in the United States that have the best hurricane preparedness. All hurricanes that have happened after 1992 have never had any big impact on the structures in the state. He adds that these building codes have helped the city cope with the problem of storms. The state also frequently revises the codes to make sure that they are consistent with the ever changing building technology. Although many residents decided to move to higher ground, there are still many who remained near the beach and have continued to live with no much trouble ever since the building codes were established.
Samuel Strauch says that the measures taken by the state have helped the city solve the hurricane situation once and for all. Miami being a beach town, such measures have been very helpful and have made it one of the best real estate investment center in the world.
