Sponsored by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Social Science, Policy, Economics, Education, and Decision (SPEED) Committee of the Infrastructure Resilience Division of ASCE, Resilient and Sustainable Buildings, IRP 7 provides a high-level overview of the methods and outcomes of four major projects funded by the National Science Foundation that focus on different aspects of resilient and sustainable buildings (RSB), ranging from a single building to a full community. IRP 7 is of interest to engineers, planners, architects, and researchers, in order to learn about the direction of research for RSB projects. Five key topics of Resilient and Sustainable Buildings, IRP 7 include:

  1. A comprehensive overview of the four multi-year research efforts;
  2. Commonalities between the projects in approaches and methods and in research gaps;
  3. Differences between the projects in methods as a function of scale and hazard;
  4. Multi-resilient and sustainable soil foundation structural envelope (SFSE) building systems, and;
  5. Decision frameworks for selecting among alternative building system designs.

The Infrastructure Resilience Division develops resources for improving the resilience of civil infrastructure and lifeline systems to all hazards. The Infrastructure Resilience Division was established in 2014 to develop a unified approach to advancing the concepts of resilience within lifeline and infrastructure systems.

About the Social Science, Policy, Economics, Education, and Decision (SPEED) Committee

Purpose: to address social science, policy, economics, education, and decision-making aspects of resilience as related to civil infrastructure and lifeline systems to support overall community resilience. Bring together leaders in these disciplines to develop truly resilient communities.
