Codes/Rating Systems for Resilience
Thursday, December 16th, 4-6PM
Free virtual event - 2 AIA LU/HSW credits

Building Codes are designed to protect people; and thus building to code may not provide the level of property protection your clients want. This indepth course offers a solution. You'll learn how to unpack the level of protection building codes offer so you can best identify-and design for- resilience gaps. Through case studies and expert interviews, you'll review how recent advances are reducing vulnerability, including lessons learned from past disasters, stretch codes, and performance-based codes. REGISTER
