This panel discusses the performance owners want from their infrastructures and what value added concepts they would like to see in proposals.
After 9-11, initial efforts at protection and resilience focused on retrofitting existing facilities.

This panel discusses how Architecture and Engineering firms are including value added concepts like resilience and sustainability in proposals and how these proposals are received.
