Eyes Wide Open: Planning for Climate Resilience

This session will share straight forward processes and principles around resilience planning & design for healthcare, answering pressing questions like: What is climate resilience? How does climate change impact planning for buildings intended to have a 50+ year life? What will this cost? How do teams balance climate resilience with other competing needs?

British Columbia, Canada is a global leader in mandating resilience planning and design. Released in 2020, these requirements influenced all BC healthcare design. Since then, leading-edge case studies offer strategies & design processes applicable to all healthcare projects.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Interpret the latest climate research at a high level and recognize its repercussions for occupant health, safety and welfare within healthcare facilities
  2. Form a clear value proposition for resilient design strategies and facilitate an informed decision-making process
  3. Leverage readily available tools and resources to identify appropriate strategies that help protect facilities against climate change
  4. Recognize how climate change and climate-related disasters impact a wide range of different constituencies
