EL40 - GAF Presents: Climate Resilient Buildings: Design for Change

Thursday, November 21 from 10:15 AM to 11:15 AM | Booth L905 « Back

Abstract Text:

Join us for an engaging session to learn what climate resilient design is all about and how it produces buildings that are better prepared for climate change and the natural disasters and disruptions it brings. Gain an understanding of the factors driving the need to integrate climate resilient design into practice and the development of the LEED Resilient Design Pilot credits; learn about how to conduct hazard and climate change assessments for project sites and implementing resilient design strategies; become familiar with the emerging resilient design standards and rating systems; and learn from LEED case studies. Lively discussion is encouraged as we explore how to advance the state-of-the-art for climate resilient design, facilitated by Valerie Walsh, appointee of the USGBC Resilience Working Group and co-author of the LEED Resilient Design Pilot credits.

Learning Objectives:

Apply the LEED Resilient Design Pilot credits as an entry point and roadmap.

Conduct hazard and climate change assessments for project sites to inform design decisions and anticipate future vulnerabilities.

Implement climate resilient design through emerging resilient design standards and rating systems, such as RELi and Fortified.

Demonstrate resilience strategies implemented through case studies, including the first to achieve the LEED Resilient Design Pilot credit.
