RDI’s Alex Wilson (who is speaking tomorrow at the GAF Commercial Partners in Growth conference in Nashville), was interviewed recently by Building Capacity Blog. Here’s a link, and here’s a snippet, in which he responds to the question of whether sustainable building and resilience may sometimes be in conflict:
I think there are aspects of green building that at some level may be in opposition to resilience. For example, redundancy is an important aspect of resilience, while efficiency is more in line with green building. This is fine; we’ll need to rethink some strategies. But in most cases, the sustainability and resilience are synergistic and work well together.
