As evident by recent events, mitigation is cheaper than response. Today's concept of resiliency relates to "building capacity within individuals, communities, institutions, businesses, and systems to survive, adapt, and grow no matter what kinds of chronic stresses and acute shocks they experience". The term hazard is now broadened to include "external pressures in general, varying from climate change and environmental degradation to poverty and traffic congestion."
Whether in the public or private sectors, one day or sometimes even seconds of downtime in any critical infrastructure can have extensive ramifications in terms of physical damage to buildings, human lives, business operations, productivity and revenue. Datafaire can help you integrate energy and environmental resilience services, and effective technologies to enable proper monitoring and early warning mechanisms that can help avert damage, save lives and minimize down time.
Our resiliency framework is built on the foundation of 7 characteristics that resilient entities share (based on the work performed by Rockefeller Foundation and Arup): Reflectiveness, Robustness, Redundancy, Flexibility, Resourcefulness, Inclusion and Integration. We address client needs through two different approaches:
Consulting services for resiliency and smart/sustainable buildings and communities and,
Technology-based services that include turnkey monitoring, data analytics and early detection and alerting systems
Comprehensive resiliency solutions for indoor and outdoor spaces in both public and private projects span:
Monitoring and early detection of natural and man-made hazards for critical public structures, eg., bridges, tunnels, power grid, data centers, etc.;
Structural health monitoring and state of health services;
Sensing for noise, impact, particulate radiation (including dirty bombs), environmental factors including carbon monoxide (smog), humidity, snow, ice, flood, and PM 2.5
Site resource inspections for commercial, industrial and institutional projects;
Outreach and training;
Technical and financial analysis and presentation;
Marketing collateral development;
Web Content Development
We would love to hear from you and discuss your current resiliency practices. Investment in resiliency extends well beyond bouncing back from a stressful event. Our services will help your organization improve energy savings, occupant comfort and well-being, maintain higher uptime, reduce the magnitude of damage and ultimately, revenue. Contact us.
