Buckman Resilience600.jpg CIVIC school HUBS
NSF CIVIC grant to incubate the Federal School Infrastructure Toolkit for more resilience Community services. A pilot program with be developed with the BENSON school district in Portland, and woven into the urban/rural network of the Metro regional emergency response.

Blueprint Chapters

Grid connected Buildings.jpeg Grid-Interactive, Efficient and Connected Buildings (GEBs)
This section explores why the buildings need to be efficient, responsive, and able to interact with the electrical grid in a way that benefits both the building owner and the grid as a whole and what KPIs can be used to measure the effectiveness of the grid-connected buildings.
MobilityChapter.jpg Mobility
Mobility has been a constantly evolving critical feature of human civilization. Major changes and advances in mobility have been linked to the advent of new power sources (animals, wind, steam, fossil fuels, super dense batteries, etc.).
OperationsChapter.jpg Next Generation Building Operations
This section explores how the next generation of smart building operations, functionality and maintenance is utilizing the (IoT) internet of things to operate at full interconnectivity, functionality and efficiency. Smart building , operations, functionality and maintenance capabilities cut energy consumption and CO2 emissions, reduce maintenance costs and extend equipment lifetime. Various systems offer actionable insights, drive fewer complaints from occupants, decrease the need for unscheduled maintenance and reduce energy costs and carbon footprint. In the time of pandemic or other extreme events, smart buildings may offer autonomous operation.
ProductivityChapter.jpg Organizational and Individual Productivity and Wellness of Smart Buildings
This section explores the application of smart technologies in buildings to increase the ORGANIZATIONAL PRODUCTIVITY and WELLNESS of the various private/public sector stakeholders: the owners & investor organizations, property and facility management organizations, government and corporate tenants (i.e. organizations who occupy or rent space) and individual occupants.
ResilientHubChapter.jpg Resilience Hubs
This chapter demonstrates how integrated smart systems that draw on a number of technologies, processes, and data can enable a community structures to function more efficiently for their main purpose as well as be prepared to serve as a “community resiliency hub” and/or “emergency shelter” as needed. Selecting a school as a community resilience hub leverages its existing function for families already charged with protecting children, employing vetted professionals, and communicating with parents, public safety agencies, and city government as well as embuing the school with some additional important functions and responsibilities to an extended community population. (The pilot for this project--using the Buckman School in Portland, Oregon--received a National Science Foundation Planning Grant in 2022.)

This section explores how the next generation of smart building operations, functionality and maintenance is utilizing the Internet of Things (IoT) to operate at full interconnectivity, functionality and efficiency.


GreenUrban.jpg Supporting Community Cooperation in Urban Design
Engagement, Visioning, Master Planning, and Making Agreements are found in a process that communities use to make meaningful change in their neighborhood. Community stories are precedents demonstrating the value of integrating nature with development to sustain active and vital community-oriented neighborhoods.
