U.S. Resiliency Council



Your next building can not only be environmentally friendly, it can obtain a Verified Rating with the industry’s most prestigious rating system for resilient design.


The US Resiliency Council’s mission is to establish and implement meaningful rating systems that describe the performance of buildings during earthquakes and other natural hazard events, to educate the general public to understand these risks, and to therby improve societal resilience.

The USRC Building Rating System identifies expected impacts of an earthquake or other hazard on buildings. The rating considers the performance of a building’s structure, its mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems, and architectural components such as cladding, windows, partitions, and ceilings.
