Morning Education Session:

Perspectives for Resilient Design in Commercial Buildings when Facing Climate Change

Climate change is drastically impacting how buildings of the future must be designed and constructed. We are experiencing hotter/ colder extremes, an increase in tornadoes/ flooding, a record number of forest fires and unforeseen weather patterns. This presentation will cover such topic areas as:

  • Roof design to withstand high wind events, rapid downpour, brighter and much warmer days

  • Cladding types that will work with climate change

  • Mechanical filters and scrubbers to address forest fire smoke ingress

  • Other things to keep in mind when building for the future
