How can our projects better meet both climate change adaptation and mitigation goals? How can our profession more proactively discuss issues of risk related to both objectives with our clients? This presentation focuses on how to prepare buildings for natural and manmade disasters. It identifies the elements of a building risk assessment, stressing realistic threats and realistic desired outcomes. It shows strategies for making building life safety systems more resistant to catastrophic events. The presentation presents approaches and recommendations by the New York City Building Resilience Task Force, a group of professionals convened by the Mayor of New York to develop recommendations for the city and for building owners in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Sandy. These measures will also be viewed through the lens of best practices for achieving sustainable design objectives.
