As a global leader in culture, finance, entertainment, technology, and more, New York City is accustomed to finding bold and innovative solutions. The area’s design and construction community is no different, seeking to revitalize historic treasures, create groundbreaking structures, and meet future needs while withstanding unexpected challenges. 

To prepare for the unknown, New York’s AEC leaders must design for improved performance in their structures and advocate for community resilience in their neighborhoods. This holistic approach will help the area’s buildings and infrastructure optimize operations, improve safety, and adapt to changing climate. These planning efforts facilitate recovery after natural disasters, protect physical assets and well-being from human-created incidents, and stay ahead of ever-changing codes and regulations.

Create + Construct brings together local experts to explore how to create resilient and better-performing buildings, infrastructure, and communities in New York City. Together, we will discuss how to plan a holistic response to serious threats involving flooding, storms, earthquakes, fires, and security.
