Resilient Building with Green Builder Editor-in-Chief Matt Power. Wednesday April 3, 2019, 2:00 Eastern

It's no longer prudent to put an optimistic spin on the scenarios that lie ahead. Population growth, combined with unsustainable behavior by both industry and individuals make a sudden reversal of greenhouse gas pollution extremely unlikely, if not unthinkable.

Since we can't compel our neighbors to change their behavior, what's left? Preparation. We can build disaster-resistant housing.

What does a resilient house look like? It may look just like the house next door, but behind the facade the building science is far superior. While the details vary, depending on the most likely hazards, the principal is the same: engineer the structure to stand firm as water and wind pass by.

Power will explore important strategies, best practices, and essential products for increasing the resiliency of our built environment. Sponsored by Amvic, Metal Roofing Alliance, and NFPA.
