Linnean conducted vulnerability assessments and developed resilience reports for forty-seven properties (hundreds of facilities) for an East Coast affordable housing authority. The process included conducting on-site facility audits, mapping climate vulnerabilities, interviewing facility managers and residents, and recommending critical resilience upgrades to the building’s design, infrastructure, and mechanical systems.

Accompanying these facility reports, Linnean developed an organizational report for the agency that provides comprehensive solutions for new policies, programs, and partnerships to increase the resilience of the agency to climate change and other citywide acute and chronic hazards. Recommendations covered design, operation, maintenance, and financial planning for investments, as well as frameworks for external partnerships and improved resident engagement, health, and wellbeing.
