Event Description:

In this course, we’ll examine what “resilience” means and how effective planning and application of progressive structural design, practices and building materials—particularly Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF)—can fulfill a two-pronged sustainability objective: improving a building’s energy efficiency while fortifying it against nature’s inevitable hazards.
Learning Objectives • Understand emerging risks and opportunities as human and economic losses from disasters increase. • Implement the design principals of energy and disaster resilience. • Identify the advantages of ICF building system in strengthening disaster resiliency and sustainability. • Recognize the short-term ROI of disaster resilient ICF construction as well as the long-term benefits in terms of reduce operating, insurance and maintenance costs along with improved occupant health and safety.
