Session 4: Earthquake Resiliency – USRC Ratings Show How Your Facility Measures Up
Date & Time
Wednesday, September 1, 2021, 10:25 AM - 11:25 AM
This presentation will introduce you to the United States Resiliency Council (USRC) rating system. Modeled after the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) methodology, the USRC establishes a rating system for the seismic resilience of buildings by evaluating three categories of performance: safety, damage and recovery. Structural, architectural, mechanical, electrical and plumbing components all contribute to or reduce the USRC rating in each performance category.
