Join the USGBC MA Chapter for an important morning program on implementation of resilience.
 
We are all hearing about the importance of this topic. We have participated in information sessions and presentations about the dangers of sea level rise, increased storm intensity and other issues connected to resilience. We have memorized the new shoreline maps and we "get it" that our infrastructure is going to need some help, big time.
 
How do we actually get resilience done? What are the practical things we can do as developers, designers, implementers and users of buildings and building systems?
 
The USGBC community has developed LEED Pilot Credits for resilience which are immediately available actions that every building project could incorporate - they are reasonable steps that any property can benefit from.
 
  • Filippo Masetti at SGH will talk about improving the resilience of buildings subject to coastal flooding and the new LEED resilience pilot credits.
  • Arlen Stawasz of Perkins+Will will present on the RELi Action List they have developed for designers.
  • Michael Green of Climate Action Business Association (CABA) will share their "BARS" program of resources for small businesses' response to sea level rise.

Jim Newman of Linnean Solutions will facilitate.
 
Join us for a sequence of important tool-sharing presentations, and a conversation among peers who are on the front lines of responding to the changing baseline of environmental conditions for our communities. 
 
Join us to learn steps you can take right now in your practice, at your company, or for your organization, to implement resilience in your building projects.
