About This Course:
Apocalyptic floods, cyclones and hurricanes, as well as extreme temperatures, are increasingly the new normal. Humans are in a race against time to adapt to a rapidly changing climate. As people spend most of their time indoors, it is imperative to design buildings that are resilient to climate changes. This learning program will provide an overview and explore the opportunities and challenges of preparing existing buildings to withstand physical climate hazards, including extreme temperatures, floods, storms and high winds, seismic risks, and water stress or drought.
Learning Objective 1
Attendees will learn the key factors of considerations for designing below-grade construction, exterior walls, both structural (providing support for the building) and nonstructural (supported by the building structure); fenestration, both windows and metal/glass curtain walls; and roofs, both low- and steep-slope; and atria.
Learning Objective 2
Attendees will understand the ways to make buildings resilient to climate change, with regards to extreme temperatures, drought, coastal flooding and sea-level rise, cyclones and strong winds.
Learning Objective 3
Attendees will learn the potential benefits of incorporating the concept of climate-resilience into building designs from the examples offered in the learning program. Selected projects will be discussed to reinforce the attendees’ understanding of the concept.
Learning Objective 4
The potential challenges in design and construction, as well as cost implications, will be discussed.
