Because the project is so large, consisting of 14 poultry barns with 28,000 sq. ft. each, it would have been very expensive and time consuming to go with their other option of elevating each barn. Elevating each barn would have adversely impacted surrounding properties and communities in the mapped SFHA & flood way. Installing SMART VENT® Engineered Flood Vents was much simpler and a much more cost-effective way to mitigate, as they were able to be installed and incorporated into the existing foundation.
