Assessing and Designing for Resilience
The climate has changed, and we now need to adapt. A study recently completed by RWDI shows that in the last 50 years alone Southern Ontario has shifted from ASHRAE climate zone 6 to 5 and is heading towards climate zone 4 by 2040. The design and planning community has largely accepted this new climate paradigm and has begun to develop strategies to make buildings and communities resilient to changing climate normals.
In this presentation, Mike Williams will walk through a case study highlighting work recently undertaken by RWDI to assess the resilience of over 150 City of Toronto facilities. The presentation will be augmented by Quadrangle Design's Michelle Xuereb who will provide a visual summary of some resiliency best practices to consider implementing when designing a new building.
Presented by CSC Toronto Chapter and…

His recent experience includes leading resiliency assessments on over 150 City of Toronto facilitates; the development of energyCompass.design a cloud-based energy benchmarking portal; and the facilitation of over 30 integrated design charrettes.
Michelle’s role is to stay current with emerging environmental trends and to ensure that sustainability is integrated into every decision made at Quadrangle. Michelle has contributed to over 30 LEED certified projects completed by Quadrangle and continues to work with our team to create sustainability targets for our clients that are rooted in their corporate sustainability goals.
