Climate Change Impacts


Climate Change Impacts




Resilient Analytics™ provides robust analysis of the vulnerabilities, adaptation options and specific actions to reduce the risk of climate change impacts on building asset. From hospitals to office buildings, high-rise apartments to schools - a detailed analysis can answer critical questions including:

  • How and when retrofit action should be taken?
  • How can upgrades in windows and building envelope can increase energy efficiency?
  • How can energy efficient investments reduce emissions and costs associated with a changing climate?

Climate Change and Buildings

Any disruption in building operation can result in significant impacts on daily economic and social activity and pose challenges in emergency situations. Buildings are vulnerable to climate changes in a variety of ways. Increased population can damage roof drainage systems; changes in humidity and temperature directly affect air conditioning and indoor air quality; changes in temperature can effect the energy use of the building, often increasing costs of energy and greenhouse gas emissions.

Addressing these impacts can result in high financial costs and loss of use. Life-cycle analysis is particularly important for buildings because they are designed to operate for 30-50 years and longer.

Adaptation and Risk Analysis

Identifying vulnerabilities, adaptation measures and energy saving options can improve the operation of buildings throughout their life-cycle, despite climate change impacts. Resilient Analytics™ leverages industry expertise, building-specific knowledge and a range of IPCC-approved climate models to provide specific guidance to owners, managers and operators of facilities.


Resilient Analytics™ provides comprehensive evaluation of vulnerabilities, energy savings options and adaptations necessary to address a changing climate. Specific guidance can be provided about a range of building elements including HVAC systems, windows and building envelope, roof drainage and more.

Reports provide both detailed and summary information to inform climate change planning, adaptation and remissions reduction.
