Boulder County, Colorado
Steve Moddemeyer, Principal and Chris Poland Consulting Engineer collaborated with the Boulder CDBG-DR Collaborative to develop a Resilient Design Performance Standard for infrastructure and associated buildings. This helped the communities to set recovery times for infrastructure based on community priorities.
The process revealed dependencies and interdependencies between infrastructure systems that would otherwise delay achieving the community’s goal of recovery. It also developed guidance for infrastructure design teams to consider and document consideration of socio-ecological resilience into the infrastructure design process.
