Facilities planning

Risk and natural hazards analysis
In partnership with Portland State University (PSU) and the Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI), Facilities Planning initiated a pilot program to evaluate 111 buildings for seismic and flood risks. The goal is to develop a targeted prioritized plan for remediation of the “worst offenders.” The work will include a best-in-class, science-based approach to cost benefit analysis for investment prioritization. 

Guide for development with natural hazards 
"We build for resilience using science, data and community wisdom to protect against and adapt to risks, thereby making people, communities and systems better prepared to withstand catastrophic events—both natural and man-made—and able to bounce back more quickly and emerge stronger from these shocks and stresses."
