Disaster Resilience Scorecard for Industrial and Commercial Buildings

Home » Infrastructure and Buildings » Buildings Designed for Resiliency » Disaster Resilience Scorecard for Industrial and Commercial Buildings

Disaster Resilience Scorecard for Industrial and Commercial BuildingsThe Disaster Resilience Building Scorecard is intended for use by the owners, managers and operators of commercial, industrial and multi-residential buildings or campuses, both government- and privately-owned. The scorecard discusses the governance, integrated planning and preparation, and response/recovery essentials for Disaster Risk Reduction.

The Building Scorecard can be applied to multiple buildings in a company’s portfolio, and there is no pre-defined sequence in which to complete the Building Scorecard. The Building Scorecard has five components.

The first part is the Summary Scorecard that contains 33 assessments, which can be used to support exploratory, assessment and consensus-building workshops.

The second part is the Detailed Scorecard, containing some 120 assessments, intended to support more in-depth consultancy investigations of a building’s or a portfolio’s resilience. This may take from 3 days (if all the information is available) to several weeks.

The third part of the Building Scorecard is the Action Guide, with possible follow-up actions once the scorecard results have been organized.

The fourth part is a downloadable spreadsheet that can capture data as the Building Scorecard is applied.

The last part is a second downloadable spreadsheet that lists other relevant standards, which are cross-referenced to the Building Scorecard.

This report from the Post Carbon Institute looks at 6 foundations for building long-lasting community resilience. It approaches resilience building as an on-going process and not as an end goal.
