Event description

Description

The climate is rapidly changing, and today's buildings will need to withstand these changes well into the future. So why are we designing to climate norms from the past 30 years? This presentation will focus on what we should be doing to ensure our buildings are capable of fulfilling their function throughout their entire service life, not just the first few decades. This requires a combined approach of climate adaptation and climate mitigation. Robert Lepage will discuss some high-level climate change concepts, introduce the Public Infrastructure Engineering Vulnerability Committee (PIEVC) protocol and other tools for tackling climate change, and provide a case study of the protocol’s use on a hospital in British Columbia.
