Build your apartments with the FORTIFIED construction method

In the ever-evolving world of architecture and construction, innovation is key to creating buildings that stand the test of time. At DNA Workshop, utilizing the FORTIFIED construction method in our architecture has become a cornerstone of our practice. We understand that these projects carry a unique responsibility—to create living spaces that remain strong against time, weather, and wear. 

By incorporating the FORTIFIED principles into our designs, we provide residents with more than just housing. We offer peace of mind and security. Learn more about the FORTIFIED construction method and its impact on affordable housing architecture.

Understanding the FORTIFIED Construction Method

The FORTIFIED construction method is more than just a technique. It’s a philosophy that ensures buildings can withstand the harshest of natural elements. Developed by the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS), this method seamlessly blends core principles of science and construction, incorporating cutting-edge engineering to safeguard against the most severe weather events.

The FORTIFIED construction method encompasses three tiers of protection: bronze (now known as FORTIFIED Roof), FORTIFIED Silver, and FORTIFIED gold. Each level addresses specific vulnerabilities that structures might face in their geographic area. From hurricanes and high winds to heavy rainfall, FORTIFIED structures are designed to stand strong against violent weather, protecting both the occupants within and the investments made.

Affordable Multifamily Housing With FORTIFIED Multifamily

In the realm of affordable housing, the FORTIFIED construction method extends its innovative touch to multifamily design through FORTIFIED Multifamily. FORTIFIED Multifamily brings the same principles of strength and resilience to multifamily housing as it does to single-family homes. By integrating cutting-edge engineering practices and weather-resistant design, FORTIFIED Multifamily projects elevate the standards of affordability and durability.

At DNA Workshop, our dedication to affordable multifamily housing aligns with the principles of FORTIFIED Multifamily. We understand that multifamily developments are vital in meeting the growing demand for affordable urban living spaces. By embracing the FORTIFIED Multifamily approach, we create not only functional and stylish residences but also environments that offer a higher degree of protection against the forces of nature. The result is a fusion of affordability, sustainability, and resilience that addresses the needs of our communities today and tomorrow.
