Climate Change Resiliency - April 4
As the development boom continues, climate change is affecting the way projects are designed and built. Regulators at all levels of government are considering how laws and policies should address the changing climate. ??
Join NAIOP to get a behind the scenes look at how two ambitious projects in Boston’s Seaport, Pier 4 and Seaport Square, are tackling this issue and how a commitment to resiliency is shaping some of Boston’s most exciting new developments. Learn from insurance leader FM Global about their approach to working with developers on resiliency issues. The Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy & Environmental Affairs and the Boston Planning & Development Agency will discuss current and future efforts to plan for climate change and what it means for development.
