Re: any info on Club O

As an architect in a flood and hurricane zone the main thinking in rebuilding needs to be to elevate. The storm surge should leave good clues as to how high on the remaining buildings. We use a lot of break-away construction that limits damage to the main structure. Since Orient village was built, the concrete methods used seemed to work well since those buildings, and those concrete structures at Club O seemed to weather this worst of storms with damage but potentially salvageable. This needs to be the thinking. Wood roofs can be replaced and so can fixtures and finishes. Out of the box? Not by international standards but maybe by island standards. Won't be cheap but it'll be worth it after the next hurricane.
