Climate Change Effects on Buildings & Construction by City Tech Blogger David Persaud

Buildings are never meant to last forever, but with the climate changing, buildings of the future will have to withstand a lot more than they do today. According to the article “Climate change impact on buildings and constructions” by ClimateChangeAdaption, future buildings will be in more danger compared to today. “Increase in the risk of collapse, declining health and significant loss of value as a result of more storms, snow or subsidence damage, water encroachment, deteriorating indoor climate and reduced building lifetime,” are just some of the new challenges that new building designs face. Along with new buildings, existing buildings will need to be updated to help better understand their structure, strength, and wear. The changing climate will later affect these buildings. New building developments will have to concentrate on preventing the damage from climate change. Existing buildings will have to be upgraded or adapt to better building codes in order to remain strong.

    what you are saying is true, better building codes would be needed also better engineering designs to with stand our changing climate.
