Cape Cod Times Highlights New Hospital Resiliency

A new article from the Cape Cod Times celebrates the resilient design of the new Nantucket Cottage Hospital and its ability to “survive Category 5 Hurricanes.” The piece notes that “the 106,000 sf, 14-bed hospital is being built to hurricane design specifications established by Miami Dade County – some of the strictest in the country. Canon Design’s David Kelly is quoted in the piece and shares that “Building according to the Florida code allows the hospital to withstand Hurricane Irma-strength winds of 185 mph, rather than 150 mph as specified by Massachusetts codes. The term is resiliency – it’s survivability.”
