Resilient Communities Need Resilient Buildings

Most people lack reliable information about how disasters will affect the buildings in which they live and work.

Our vision is a world where we have a low impact on the environment, AND the environment has a low impact on us.

We are guided by our E4 principle: Engineering in the service of Equity, the Environment and our Economy.

The USRC is the leader in complementing green design with resilient design, to achieve sustainability.

A Member-Driven Approach to Promote Resiliency

The USRC boasts nearly 100 members, among them engineers, architects, builders, industry leaders, and engineering professional organizations. Our members and the more than 70 professionals certified to use the USRC Rating System are engaging the diverse building stakeholder community to promote the benefits of resilience based design.

Together we are changing the discussion around the value of long-term resilient thinking. We are developing rating systems for wind, wildfire and flood to supplement our earthquake rating system, and we are actively collaborating with lenders, insurers, and local, state and federal jurisdictions to incentivize investments in resiliency.
