Jan 1 2018 Revision
Permits Within
Non-Conforming Subdivisions
Structural Requirements
Regardless of the class of permit issued (I or II), all Non-Conforming
Subdivisions must show, in addition to any other requirements, the following
elevations are met:
1. If the structure is a single family residence the finished floor shall be a
minimum of 12 inches above the highest adjacent natural grade when measured
10 feet from the edge of the slab or 12 inches above the crown of the adjacent
street which ever results in the highest elevation (An exception may be granted
on sloping properties where the crown requirement is not achievable).
2. If the structure is other than a single family residence the slab shall
have a minimum of 6 inches of exposure to adjacent grade and be at least 12
inches above the crown of the adjacent street (An exception may be granted on
sloping properties where the crown requirements cannot be achieved).
3. To verify this for structures outside the floodplain, a newly created
HC Foundation Certificate will be required.
 No fill may be used to elevate structures in the 1 percent or 100-year flood
plain. Structures may be constructed on an open foundation, such as piers, or
on continuous foundation walls with properly sized and located openings. All
foundations are required to be designed by a registered professional engineer.
The drawings shall clearly show compliance with all provisions of these
regulations. Fill may be used in coastal surge zones where flood plain fill
mitigation is not an issue, however the standard for foundations remain the
same.
 All structures shall be designed to withstand a three second gust basic wind
speed of 120 miles per hour. This will ensure structural rigidity, should design
flood elevations be exceeded, or the structure requires elevation in the future.
Additional Requirements
All structures in the floodway must now meet the requirements that were
previously only required in the San Jacinto floodway.
I. Foundation Type: The foundation system shall consist of a driven pile or a drilled
pier foundation system
II. Type and Size of Driven Pile: Driven piles shall consist of either twelve (12) inch
(minimum) square pre-stressed concrete piles or fourteen (14) inch (minimum)
diameter steel pipe piles with a closed end.
III. Type and Size of Drilled Pier: Drilled piers shall be eighteen (18) inch diameter
(minimum) and straight-sided (no belled or under-reamed base)
IV. The minimum embedment below natural grade for driven piles and drilled piers
shall be twenty (20) feet
V. The individual piles or piers shall be braced horizontally with reinforced concrete tie
beams connecting the pier/pile caps each way (not diagonally). For piles that extend
above natural grade and act as column supports for the structure, a reinforced
concrete collar shall be cast around each pile at the groundline, and the collars shall
be connected each way with reinforced concrete tie beams
VI. Additional construction requirements
Building in the Floodway
Home Buyout Program
Additional Highlights
• All requirements specific to the 10 year floodplain have been removed.
• For the purpose of rebuilding after a flood event, any single family residence
that received flood damage, but the finished floor is at or above the 1 percent
or 100-year flood level, cannot be substantially damaged, if they meet the
minimum federal elevation requirement for rebuilding.
• Where a conditional letter of map change has been obtained or will be
obtained from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for property
which has been elevated by the use of fill above the elevation of the 1 percent
or 100-year flood, and detailed plans have been approved by Harris County a
Class I permit will be issued.
• Floodplain fill mitigation requirements do not apply to Coastal Areas where
floodplain fill mitigation is not an issue.
• In areas of combined coastal and riverine flood hazard, floodplain fill
mitigation requirement only applies for the portion of fill placed below the
riverine flood hazard elevation as provided in the FIS or an approved
hydraulic model

Durability of Timber Piling
Some well know examples of the durability of timber piling:
• At Ephesus, in what is now Western Turkey, a temple was
constructed around 6000 BC and reconstructed 300 years
later on the original untreated timber pile foundation.
• Near Rochester England, excavations of old Roman roads
revealed timber piles 1900 years old in excellent condition.
• The first masonry London Bridge built in 1176 stood on
untreated elm piles and lasted 600 years
• The Campanile Tower in Venice was rebuilt in 1902 on the
original 1000 year old timber piles which supported the
original structure built in 900 AD.
• The sill excellent condition of piles used for the Circus in
Arles (France), built in 148 AD on wetlands, can be seen in
the museum at the site.

  • 23. Structural Requirements Regardless of the class of permit issued (I or II), all Non-Conforming Subdivisions must show, in addition to any other requirements, the following elevations are met: 1. If the structure is a single family residence the finished floor shall be a minimum of 12 inches above the highest adjacent natural grade when measured 10 feet from the edge of the slab or 12 inches above the crown of the adjacent street which ever results in the highest elevation (An exception may be granted on sloping properties where the crown requirement is not achievable). 2. If the structure is other than a single family residence the slab shall have a minimum of 6 inches of exposure to adjacent grade and be at least 12 inches above the crown of the adjacent street (An exception may be granted on sloping properties where the crown requirements cannot be achieved). 3. To verify this for structures outside the floodplain, a newly created HC Foundation Certificate will be required.
  • 24.  No fill may be used to elevate structures in the 1 percent or 100-year flood plain. Structures may be constructed on an open foundation, such as piers, or on continuous foundation walls with properly sized and located openings. All foundations are required to be designed by a registered professional engineer. The drawings shall clearly show compliance with all provisions of these regulations. Fill may be used in coastal surge zones where flood plain fill mitigation is not an issue, however the standard for foundations remain the same.  All structures shall be designed to withstand a three second gust basic wind speed of 120 miles per hour. This will ensure structural rigidity, should design flood elevations be exceeded, or the structure requires elevation in the future. Additional Requirements
  • 25. All structures in the floodway must now meet the requirements that were previously only required in the San Jacinto floodway. I. Foundation Type: The foundation system shall consist of a driven pile or a drilled pier foundation system II. Type and Size of Driven Pile: Driven piles shall consist of either twelve (12) inch (minimum) square pre-stressed concrete piles or fourteen (14) inch (minimum) diameter steel pipe piles with a closed end. III. Type and Size of Drilled Pier: Drilled piers shall be eighteen (18) inch diameter (minimum) and straight-sided (no belled or under-reamed base) IV. The minimum embedment below natural grade for driven piles and drilled piers shall be twenty (20) feet V. The individual piles or piers shall be braced horizontally with reinforced concrete tie beams connecting the pier/pile caps each way (not diagonally). For piles that extend above natural grade and act as column supports for the structure, a reinforced concrete collar shall be cast around each pile at the groundline, and the collars shall be connected each way with reinforced concrete tie beams VI. Additional construction requirements Building in the Floodway
  • 27. Additional Highlights • All requirements specific to the 10 year floodplain have been removed. • For the purpose of rebuilding after a flood event, any single family residence that received flood damage, but the finished floor is at or above the 1 percent or 100-year flood level, cannot be substantially damaged, if they meet the minimum federal elevation requirement for rebuilding. • Where a conditional letter of map change has been obtained or will be obtained from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for property which has been elevated by the use of fill above the elevation of the 1 percent or 100-year flood, and detailed plans have been approved by Harris County a Class I permit will be issued. • Floodplain fill mitigation requirements do not apply to Coastal Areas where floodplain fill mitigation is not an issue. • In areas of combined coastal and riverine flood hazard, floodplain fill mitigation requirement only applies for the portion of fill placed below the riverine flood hazard elevation as provided in the FIS or an approved hydraulic model
  • 31. New Residential Foundations Helical Pier Foundation Permanent Wood Foundation
  • 32. Durability of Timber Piling Some well know examples of the durability of timber piling: • At Ephesus, in what is now Western Turkey, a temple was constructed around 6000 BC and reconstructed 300 years later on the original untreated timber pile foundation. • Near Rochester England, excavations of old Roman roads revealed timber piles 1900 years old in excellent condition. • The first masonry London Bridge built in 1176 stood on untreated elm piles and lasted 600 years • The Campanile Tower in Venice was rebuilt in 1902 on the original 1000 year old timber piles which supported the original structure built in 900 AD. • The sill excellent condition of piles used for the Circus in Arles (France), built in 148 AD on wetlands, can be seen in the museum at the site. Permanent Wood Foundation
  • 33. Building In Non-conforming Subdivisions Return on Investment • Lower risk of damage during heavy rain event • Lower flood insurance premium • Lower cost if elevation is needed in the future Foundation Type Cost per add’l foot Concrete block piers $890 Crawlspace with concrete block walls $1,850 Crawlspace with poured concrete walls $2,155
  • 34. Slab on-grade Elevation Single-family residential raised to pier and beam foundation in the Meyerland area Single-family residential raised to footing and stem wall foundation in the Meyerland area
  • 35. Commercial Elevated commercial building in the 100 yr floodplain with subsurface detention capacity.
  • 36. County Facilities Quick Response After the first 6 days of recovery all 180+ Harris County operated buildings were assessed for damage and all damaged structures were already repaired or in proposal process for repairs
  • 37. Criminal Justice Center (CJC) Pre-Harvey Post-Harvey Scope The Criminal Justice Center experienced flooding up to 21 inches in the basement and 2 inches on the first floor. In addition, the facility had water damages on multiple floors covering a combined area of approximately 150,600 square feet.
  • 38. WHAT WILL BE DONE  Restoration of damaged areas caused Hurricane Harvey  Flood Mitigation and Protection measures to protect the facility from potential future flooding events, in compliance with newly-adopted flood plain regulations. Those protective measures include: o New flood barriers around the CJC and replacement of existing flood gates in the basement, first floor and garage parking level. o Critical building equipment relocated to the First Floor on platforms 4’ above the finish floor. o New durable and water-resistant finishes to reestablish building operations quickly.  Building Improvements Highlights o First floor lobby expansion and reconfiguration to alleviate congestion at Security Screening and Public Elevator Lobby areas. o Five new elevators to be added to expand vertical transportation capacity and modernization of existing elevators. TIMETABLE & UPCOMING MILESTONES  On June 4, 2018 – Phased reopening starts with the opening of Floors 17, 18, 19, 20, available for some court functions. Portions of the First Floor Lobby will be accessible and elevators servicing the available upper floors will be operational.  Phased design and construction will continue through at least 2019. Criminal Justice Center (CJC)
  • 39. Harris County Jury Assembly Pre-Harvey Post-Harvey Scope Jury Assembly experienced flooding in excess of 108 inches in the basement level and 120 inches in the adjacent tunnel areas. The area of damaged encompassed approximately 31,773 square feet. All flooring, sheetrock walls, furniture, electronics, pipe insulation, mechanical and electrical equipment in flood areas was determined to be unsalvageable.
  • 40. WHAT WILL BE DONE  Flood Mitigation and Protection Highlights o New flood door/protection at CenterPoint Vault to address the source of the Flood o New flood barriers at stair doors o Replacement of existing flood doors o Replacement of materials and finishes with flood resistant options o Replacement of assembly area seating with exterior-grade flood resistant options o New emergency sump pumps  Building Improvement Highlights o New enclosed/air-conditioned entry expansion at street level for 160-person queuing capacity TIMETABLE  Performed To-Date o Complete Building Damage Assessment and Water Intrusion Forensic Study was performed to locate the source of flooding for the building. o User-group meetings to explore and define areas of improvements based on current requirements. o Numerous Design studies and cost estimates have been performed to address flood protection and mitigation strategies as well as improvements to facility functions.  Upcoming Milestones o Design efforts are scheduled to start at the end of June 2018, and will continue through the end of the year, with construction projected to start in February 2019. o Estimated construction completion is November 2019 Harris County Jury Assembly
