- Very high wind speeds, especially near the coastal head-lands

- A Cascadia subduction zone earthquake may occur sometime in the near future inducing large lateral and vertical seismic accelerations on the structure

-Difficult geotechnical conditions such as loose sandy soils prone to settlement from bearing and potential liquification during ground motions, clayey soils prone to low bearing strength and low permeability, slope stability on sloped lots

- High-intensity precipitation and drainage issues

- Changes to the Oregon Building Codes every three years
