The United States Resiliency Council and Clark Pacific have teamed up to bring you the
Webinar series: The Case for Resilient Design

Throughout the series you will hear from industry experts and learn:

  • The value of resilient based design
  • How to easily & efficiently predict building performance 
  • Real world examples of resilient designed projects 
  • Financial Return and why resilience is good for business  
Who should watch the webinars:

Structural engineers, architects, owners and developers.Also, anyone involved in the mortgage or insurance industries evaluating Probable Maximum Loss (PML) or interested in resilient based design.
Resilient Based Design & Risk Assessment Webinar and the In-Depth Session on FEMA P-58 and SP3 Software
In RBD & Risk Assessment session you will learn:
  • The value of FEMA P-58
  • What's new in FEMA P-58
  • How to easily implement FEMA P-58
  • SP3 Software: Technology designed to obtain a risk assessment in hours not days
In the FEMA P-58 and SP3 Software In-Depth Session, you will learn:
  • Shortcomings of ASCE 41 procedures for performance assessment
  • Sources of uncertainty in predicting future performance
  • Types of performance assessments
  • Steps in the performance-assessment process
  • Interpreting results of SP3 software to assess performance
In this session you will learn:
  • Trends driving resilient based design
  • Need for resilience rating systems: building codes vs. reality
  • Role of building ratings
  • Value of a rating system
Resilient Design in the Real World: A Case Study Webinar
In this webinar we look at three resilient designed projects each using a different structural system, steel, cast in place and precast. We hear from the structural engineers on the projects on why the design was chosen and the process of designing for resiliency.

Learning points:
  • The details of what makes the project resilient
  • Challenges and successes of the projects
  • The process of designing for resilience
  • The future implications for the buildings
With today’s RBD building guidelines, technology and performance models, owners and developers can transition from traditional risk management to a resilient risk management approach, which can mitigate risk for all stakeholders and be a strategic advantage for any real estate portfolio.

We explored:
  • The PML industry: the present and future
  • PML strategies and policies for greater confidence in seismic risk assessment
  • Examples of how design professionals are adding value to their services by quantifying RBD
  • The ROI of RBD
  • Strategies for architects and engineers that improve the long term resilience of a community
  • Direct impact to the owners’ bottom line through optimization of insurance programs
