brkdEdge Environment has been working on the Resilience Program for seven years, with the key objective of driving a more resilient built environment.

The Building Resilience Knowledge Database (BRKD) is a component of the Resilience Program, designed to develop a rigorous measure of the resilience of building materials and products (as opposed to the BRRT, which rates houses and buildings).

Research was carried out to collect available information regarding the resilience of building materials and products, and assimilate it into one format.

Edge Environment adds value to the Insurance Council of Australia by understanding the role of insurance in the broader resilience agenda, and providing robust science and advice to support the program.
