A building’s resilience is often thought of as its ability to withstand the impact of external stressors. But, there are also many internal stressors that can contribute to a building’s resilience, and ultimate the health of the building and the people inside it. This session will build on the concept, "Design It Healthy, Build It Healthy, Keep It Healthy" with a focus on smart construction practices and systems and material selections. Participants will explore research-based strategies and case studies to gain knowledge of specifying resilient, healthy materials and employing resilient practices. Participants will also leave with resources to employ “Design It Healthy, Build It Heathy, Keep It Healthy” in their work.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Define resiliency, external stressors, and internal stressors as they relate to the built environment
  2. Describe how exterior conditions can affect the interior conditions of buildings
  3. Explore research-based strategies and case studies to gain knowledge of how to specify resilient, healthy materials and employ resilient practices
  4. Utilize resources to design it healthy and keep it healthy
