NRMCA, Build With Strength Promote Enhanced Resilience in Construction

Fostering enhanced resilience in construction is a crucial part of the Build With Strength program to promote increased concrete construction. As part of that effort, two articles were recently published in Engineered Systems magazine by NRMCA Senior Vice President, Structures and Codes, Scott Campbell. The first discusses recently published resilient design guidelines for Washington, DC, while the second article examines other recent attempts at legislating resilient design and the shortcomings with the different approaches. The columns are 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.
