BBCA’s Resilience Star Rating system measures the disaster resilience of buildings.
The world-first Resilience Rating applies decades of research to provide tailored actions to increase the resilience of any building – old or new.
It provides an independent global standard to measure, rate and reward resilience.

Why adapt buildings?
Increased resilience protects lives, homes and communities and is a smart investment in a sustainable future.
A $1 investment in adaptation and risk reduction saves between $2 and $11 in post-disaster recovery and reconstruction (CSIRO, 2020)
