Boulder County, Colorado Adopt NIST Community Resilience Guide for Buildings and Infrastructure Systems

infrastructureBoulder County and the state of Colorado have adopted the National Institute of Standards and Technology‘s community resilience planning guide for building and infrastructure systems to support the development of the collaborative’s own infrastructure standards.

NIST said Wednesday that the new standard is designed to let cities and towns within the collaborative set goals that will establish the desired resilience performance, including the ability to prepare, recover and adapt from disasters, of structures and infrastructures for 50 years.

The standard will also focus on clusters of building, such as housing, healthcare and retail, are also taken into account with the standard, NIST added.

“Organizing the built environment into clusters provides a basis for developing an estimate of how to prioritize systems for recovery and sets a workable timeline goal for recovery after a disaster,” said the county report on the collaborative standard.
