    Human health being one, we have all, I think many of us either experienced ourselves or know someone who has experienced not feeling well in a space for various reasons, whether it's there's mold or there's poor air circulation, or it's too hot or too cold, even that. Is a simple example of feeling either better or worse because of your built environment. http://www.solvecast.com/articles/detail/15258-sustainable-design-resilience-planning-with-ariane-laxo

    I think before the pandemic, a lot of people we would bring this topic to and suggest let's do, let's, have a resiliency conversation about potential shocks and stressors that might impact your business and your building and how we might plan for it in our building design. But also, how are you as an organization also planning for it. Strengthening relationships with your greater community partners, et cetera. Before COVID those conversations sometimes we'd have clients say, yeah, absolutely. That sounds great. Let's talk about it. Some would say, Oh, we actually have a resiliency expert or a hazard mitigation planning department, but we never talk really to the building department.... Whereas I think now we've seen with COVID that the stronger we can make all connections within our organizations, the stronger or the more able we're going to be to withstand these types of stressors or shocks COVID so I think we'll continue to see more and more interest in conversations around resilience because COVID has made us all realize just how important that is. http://www.solvecast.com/articles/detail/15258-sustainable-design-resilience-planning-with-ariane-laxo

    And we're thinking about this library as a potential community hub in case of an emergency. So it becomes a resiliency hub. What does that look like if we're prioritizing the health of those people in a disaster situation, when they come to this space that may or may not have power, these are types of the the complex conversations that we're having. http://www.solvecast.com/articles/detail/15258-sustainable-design-resilience-planning-with-ariane-laxo

    Resilience in buildings is about 
 designing the building so it can support operation when certain functions like the electric power grid are out of, out of order so that you can continue to operate and exist in a, in a safe and comfortable way. And so it doesn't become as much of a disruption to, and a delay to recovery after a hazard event.
