NRMCA, Build With Strength Discuss Role of Resilience in Addressing Climate Change

Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Climate change predictions are driving much of the discussion around the need for increased resilience in our communities and buildings. Although recent events have shown that current design standards may not be adequate to address the actual environmental loads placed on buildings, code development bodies are not keeping up with the changes. In an article in Engineered Systems magazine, NRMCA Senior Vice President, Structures and Codes, Scott Campbell discusses the role of building codes in enhancing resilience, and the relationship between the codes and a changing climate. The column is part of an ongoing series where Dr. Campbell lays out various aspects of security and resilience for a technical, but not specialist, audience and advances the concept of resilience as envisioned by NRMCA.

Build With Strength is a coalition led by NRMCA that promotes concrete building systems through communications, project promotion, education and advocacy. To learn more, contact Scott Campbell at or 502-552-5034.
