What happens if there is an extended power outage?
How can you ensure buildings have access to electricity?
Are you interested in learning about flood-proofing strategies? 
Come listen to Alex Wilson, Founder, BuildingGreen Inc. and Resilient Design Instituteprovide context for why we need to be considering resilience in looking at the built environment during the coming decades. He will give an overview of practical measures that can be implemented today to create more resilient buildings and communities. These measures include:
  • improvements to the energy performance of building envelopes (ensuring that buildings will maintain habitable temperatures if they lose power)
  • flood-proofing strategies
  • enhancing wind resistance
  • providing access to water, and
  • providing access to some electricity in the event of an extended power outage
