Join OSPE for a virtual workshop where we will explore how to integrate climate considerations into your municipality’s asset management activities.
Using interactive exercises and case study examples, participants will focus on anticipating climate change impacts to one asset category: Building Asset Portfolio.
The AM301 workshop provides participants with an overview of the key infrastructure systems and contributing components of a municipal building asset and reviews anticipated climate change impacts associated with each of these systems, the mechanisms of these climate impacts, and exploration of the thresholds that trigger those climate impacts within building assets. It also includes key concepts in asset management, such as risk, levels of service and performance, with a focus on lifecycle approach that considers climate change impacts.
The workshop covers the key considerations of building asset management within a typical building asset lifecycle, with guidance on where and how to insert climate resilience actions such as:
- Identifying and anticipating climate change impacts
- Monitoring for conditions that trigger asset impacts
- Options within a Building Asset’s lifecycle to enhance climate resilience
- Techniques to enhance understanding of climate/asset interactions after experiencing climate impacts
- Options for achieving improved climate resilience through design, operations, maintenance of building assets
The workshop aligns with Ontario Regulation 588/17 Asset Management Planning for Municipal Infrastructure and the principles of ISO55000 (asset management) and ISO31000 (risk).
