Resiliency - Consideration Beyond Code Requirements 

Presented by: Shamim Rashid-Sumar, PE, FSFPE, Vice President, NRMCA

Prescriptive building code requirements represent provisions for the least safe structure that may legally be built in a jurisdiction.  Over the past 20 years, the building design and construction industry has witnessed an increase in the number of trade offs of passive fire safety features for active systems. As natural disasters attributed to climate change continue to escalate, the population of neighborhoods located along the wildland urban interface increases, and fire and emergency access to buildings in densely populated areas is obstructed, multiple drivers arise to consider more robust construction for our built environment. The presentation will provide an overview of increased risks from natural and human hazards, identify approaches to mitigate their effects through voluntary and mandatory strategies, and demonstrate the importance of incorporating standards for resiliency beyond minimum code requirements.
