Monday, October 22: Building to Last, the Relationship Between Resiliency and Sustainability
This session will discuss the top resilient design strategies for buildings, lessons learned and how to create buildings that last and continue to function even in the most extreme circumstances. The presentation will identify how resilient designs begin with strategies for identification of risks, then design of building elements that minimize those risks. The presentation will also present some interesting items learned from critical building structures such as hospitals in the wake of Hurricane Irma, as well as other major events around the nation. The presentation will discuss how the “built to last” design strategies coincide with high-level sustainable design, as well as highlighting some of the most resilient and sustainable buildings in the world.

Friday, October 26: Designing for Extreme Wind at Extreme Heights
As a profession and an industry, it is critical in a time when the public demands ever-greener construction that we design our buildings to be resilient and durable – to be functional over a long period of time – in order to be sustainable. Extremely tall buildings subjected to high winds present unique challenges to strength of materials and to occupant comfort, and can only be resilient and durable when all team members creatively apply their expertise to meet the goals of safety and serviceability so that the structure can be “built to last.”
