Resilience is the New Sustainability

Lunchtime Forum

Measurable green design has become accepted by designers and developers around the world, but how can we gauge the preparedness of buildings to withstand natural hazards like earthquakes, floods and fires? The U.S. Resiliency Council is an organization dedicated to improving a building’s resilience, much as the U.S. Green Building Council seeks to improve a building’s environmental performance. Join us for a look at how the Resiliency Council readies buildings to rebound from disasters and why just building to code is not enough.
