Sandy Design Help Desk
Hurricane Sandy Reconstruction
Many of those affected by Hurricane Sandy continue to struggle to rebuild their lives. Some remain displaced or live in substandard conditions, while others are stuck mid-repair, having exhausted all insurance funds and personal resources.
Architecture for Humanity has partnered with community organizations to host a series of Sandy Design Help Desks in affected communities. The Design Help Desk provides residents with free design and technical consultation from industry professionals to aid in the rebuilding process.
Consultations include reviewing architectural drawings, creating design options, conveying building code and flood zone information, providing information on recovery programs, and other technical assistance to help build resiliently.
