How do architects develop a compelling business case for resilient design and construction? This course teaches you best practices for guiding developers and building owners on how to best address their level of risk through resilient design, including other risk management strategies such as insurance, grants, and incentive programs. You’ll learn how to raise key questions with the client and design team, use data to understand project risk, showcase how resilient design can mitigate that risk, and demonstrate the costs and benefits. You’ll also learn about the evolving professional responsibilities associated with resilient design in this emerging area of practice.

This course is part of the AIA Resilience and Adaptation Series, a multi-course series that provides you with the tools and knowledge you need to design for resilience. Take all of the courses in this series to earn a certificate of completion.
