Risk and Resilience


DESIGNING BUILDINGS TO BETTER PROTECT AND RECOVER FROM EXTREME EVENTS

In our changing world, natural and man-made extreme events are becoming more frequent. Cities, communities, buildings and organizations are increasingly susceptible to the effects of these events. We may never be able to eliminate risk completely, but we can minimize the impact of these events to improve public safety, support business continuity, and help communities recover faster.  By striving to understand what roles our buildings must fulfill, we can approach risk proactively and create better performing buildings that reduce uncertainty and inspire confidence.

Entuitive’s team of structural engineers and building envelope specialists provide insight and solutions for fire, flooding, seismic, blast, wind and climate-related impacts for both new construction and existing buildings. Working closely with the building owner, developer, architects and other consultants, we take the time to thoroughly understand the risks for your project – both immediate and potential.   Where these risks are outside of our typical domain, we engage leading experts to work with the team.

We work to enable the resiliency of your operation and the surrounding community. With proper planning and the will to design for performance outcomes better than code, we deliver practical strategies to help your unique building perform at the highest level when it’s most important.
