Our objective is to protect the building and its users from the impact of negative environmental influences and extreme events, and to improve the resilience of buildings to any influences that might be present in the local environment.
The geography of the building's site has its own set of natural hazards. Their intensity and frequency generally cannot be changed and are hard to predict. This makes it all the more important to classify them correctly and to compensate for or eliminate any adverse effects for the people in and around the building. Taking into account the likelihood of each of these occurring and the potential severity of the consequences at the planning stage reduces the cost of any retrofitting work that might be necessary. Resilient buildings that are tailored to their environment are sustainable in many respects.
