In the aftermath of recent earthquakes, how can Utah go beyond repairing the damage, and begin to prepare for bigger earthquakes ahead? How can buildings, owners, and communities take action now to avoid a future disaster, and get ready for the 'Big One'? Join ULI Utah for a webinar that will discuss building long-term resilience to earthquake impacts, covering the local recovery process from the recent earthquake in March and lessons from private and public sector experts in other seismically active regions.
- Ibrahim Almufti, structural engineer and Risk and Resilience Leader for Arup San Francisco, who oversaw development of the REDi™ Rating System for resilience-based seismic design and managed engineering on the innovative 181 Fremont building
- Marissa Aho, AICP, current Chief Resilience Officer for the City of Houston and former CRO for the City of Los Angeles, who led LA's citywide seismic resilience efforts
- Greg Schulz, Municipal Administrator for the Magna Metro Township, has been dealing with the aftermath of the earthquake first hand in Magna- the epicenter of the magnitude 5.7 quake. He will update us on damages to the community's historic Main Street and what resources they are using to repair and rebuilt
