CEOs Commit to Resilient Building

 
More resilient buildings are in America's future.

CEOs of almost two-dozen leading design and construction industry associations, for the first time, have agreed to promote resilience in contemporary planning, building materials, design, construction, and operational techniques as the solution to making the nation’s aging infrastructure more safe and secure.

The CEOs, representing more than 750,000 members, committed their design and construction sector organizations to significantly improve the resilience of the nation’s entire built environment through research into new materials, construction procedures, and other methods to improve the standard of practice.

Among other things, they also committed the industry to educating itself through continuous learning; to advocating for effective land use policies; to responding to disasters alongside first responders; and to planning for future events, with a strategy for fast recovery.
