Course Description:

At a fundamental level, our approach to design is shifting from contracts ending-at-turnover to one where the facility’s ongoing ability to thrive during interruption is considered up front. Resilience is the ability of a system to not just bounce back from disruptions or interruptions, but to bounce forward. As climate change advances, we will face increased storm intensity, flooding, heat waves, drought, power outages and wildfires. To prepare for these risks, buildings and communities must be designed to proactively manage and withstand these conditions. Designing for resiliency is made up of three key elements: engaging your client effectively to help them understand their vulnerabilities and target areas for critical investment, understanding how to design for passive survivability or disaster and learning how to engage with your team to optimize critical collaboration points. This session will use existing resilient design frameworks and exercises so that participants can apply concepts to real world projects.
