When it comes to building resilience, the roofing coverboard is often an unsung hero. When installed as part of a properly specified and installed roofing system, this material helps prevent damage to roofs and greatly increase durability.
In recent years, the term ‘resilience’ has become a buzzword used to demonstrate how products fit into adapting the built environment to expected changes. As more groups try to classify what resilience means to them, the need for a comprehensive discussion to set a standard definition of the term is highlighted.
Located in San Francisco, 181 Fremont Street is a 244-m (800-ft) building designed to be resilient against structural damage in a 500-year earthquake. The steel and glass tower is anchored by construction shafts measuring more than 29 m (260 ft) down into the bedrock.
A perfect storm of risks threatens even the simplest of resiliency goals. There are key dangers to pay attention to while evaluating the relevance of context, contracting, and people as critical factors to achieve goals.
Recognizing a mutual interest in building performance, the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).
