Linnean developed extensive resilience reports for hundreds of facilities for an East Coast affordable housing authority. The process included conducting on-site facility audits, mapping climate vulnerabilities, interviewing facility managers and residents, and recommending critical resilience upgrades to the building’s design, infrastructure, and mechanical systems. Recommendations covered design, operation, maintenance, and financial planning for facility resilience improvements, and focused on the safety of the low-income residents.
Accompanying these facility reports, Linnean developed an organizational report for the agency that provides comprehensive solutions for new policies, programs, and procedures to increase the resilience of the agency to climate change and other acute and chronic hazards. The organizational report offered recommendations to existing emergency management protocols and solutions to improve daily health and well-being of the residents—an aspect that will ultimately have a lasting impact on the resilience of this community.
