Mar 16, 2015 9:45am ‐ Mar 16, 2015 10:45am

Members: $15.00
Standard: $30.00

Description

The University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) is currently in the midst of a $1.7 billion capital improvement program. Following Hurricane Ike, UTMB re-evaluated the design of its facilities with an eye toward being self-sustaining during an emergency and capable of recovering from a weather event independent of a Federal response. The presenters will explain the innovative design strategy and lessons learned.

This session will enable attendees to:

  • Describe how to plan and design a resilient facility that can withstand natural disasters.
  • Perform risk assessments to indentify threats, applications, the potential extent of effects and exacerbating conditions, and repair or prevent these damages.
  • Implement design for increased resilience into a planned retrofit.
  • Protect yourself from potential losses and offer valuable feedback to engineers, architects, and facility managers on areas to be treated with cost-effective protective measures.

Speaker(s):

  • Patrick M. Casey, Executive Director, OPDC, University of Mississippi Medical Center
  • Bryan Jones, Associate Vice President, HDR Architecture, Inc.
  • Neil Skinner, Senior Project Manager, Vaughn Construction
  • Jim Victor, Assistant Vice President, Business Operations and Facilities - Design and Construction, University of Texas Medical Branch
