Forecasting Risks

Planning for resiliency is a multifaceted process that considers building type, business operations, and geographic location. The first step toward a resilient future is forecasting risks to the project site and building operations based on four factors--natural disaster, climate, security, and infrastructure. Learn more >

Assessing Risks

After forecasting risk based on four factors (natural disaster, climate, security, and infrastructure), the next step in resilient design is to assess the likelihood, severity and impact of those risks. Learn more >

Planning for Risks

Once building owners have categorized and prioritized risk through forecasting and assessing, they can then plan and implement resilient strategies that will enable them to function during an extreme event and quickly resume normal operations afterward. Learn more >
