How would I benefit?

Governments: lower cost of disasters, safer and more resilient buildings, improved resilient construction code implementation by private sector.

Financial institutions: lower investor’s risk exposure, higher accountability in development projects, more transparency in investment decisions.

Construction developers: differentiation in the marketplace, access to best practices for resilient construction, disclosure through a standardized system.

Property owners: lower operational disruption, lower insurance cost and potential damages to property, higher credibility with financiers.

Occupants: increased safety of the building to hazards, and ability to continue operations after the event.

Rating system

The Building Resilience Index App verifies the building information, associated hazards, and risk mitigation
strategies, and assigns a score to the building based on the hazard exposure and any residual risk.
