Climate resilient buildings

Preparing buildings to become more resilient to extreme weather events to avoid costly damages to buildings and, ultimately, save lives

As the number of powerful storms continue to increase, so does the need for preparing buildings to become more resilient to extreme weather events. This is essential to avoid costly damages to buildings and, ultimately, save lives. Weatherproofing a building should include a combination of robust building materials as well as proper design parameters to define e.g. the maximum wind speed level the building should be able to withstand and measures to secure proper thermal insulation and rainwater drainage. Denmark has used the lessons learned from previous extreme weather events to upgrade our national building code to promote measures that ensure more climate resilient buildings.
