Roof System Resiliency
Credits: 1 HSW, 1 LU
Program: Architecture, Design and Building Science
This course covers the design aspects, material components, and performance issues that result in a roof system that not only weathers the storm but helps keep a building habitable. The increasing incidence of extreme weather events jeopardizes those networks whenever infrastructure damage occurs. Long-term sustainability necessitates an inherent and essential capacity for designing for resilience in the face of vulnerability and buildings that can adapt to the changing environments in which they were built.
