A Look at School Buildings with Resilience in Mind

Click here to view list of attendees (PDF)

A growing number of resilient design tools, aimed at creating buildings and communities that can withstand disturbances – such as those associated with natural disasters – or regain functionality, are emerging. This in-depth seminar will examine essential mindsets to achieving resilience, and then guide participants through a case study of a school building with resilience in mind.

Educational Facilities are asked to serve our communities in many ways, and naturally lend themselves to a discussion on resilient design strategies from technical, environmental, and social perspectives. Operational from early morning to late at night, providing 21st century learning opportunities, physical and mental health and well-being, community experiences within the arts, sciences and competition sports, and shelter and rescue from natural and manmade disasters.
