Resilience Science Consulting, LLC


We believe we are qualified to provide climate adaptation services in the areas of construction, law and cities based, predominantly, on our experience completing such projects. As example, the framework of adaptive law informs and inspires the practice of law by Josh Stack, in advising clients such as cities and universities in how to design the legal and policy framework for adaptation projects. A project example here is advising a city land bank in how to implement a city building deconstruction pilot program. Services included redrafting RFPs and contracts to broaden participation, embrace uncertainty and the functional value of social-ecological diversity and to encourage learning as the project evolved. Our experience constructing residential projects enabled us to also provide onsite deconstruction education services, as well as building science and sustainable construction education (i.e., in learning how to take apart buildings, it is possible to teach trainees how to construct them). We also construct and verify resilient, passive and innovative projects. A key element of services here is quantifying and measuring key metrics such as energy use, health, even adaptive capacity (by embedding our project within diverse spatial-temporal scales using resilience science and biomimicry as a basis for our processes). Education and training for principals of our related businesses include: Josh Stack, JD, LLM (admitted to practice in New York State), Passive House US Rater, International Living Future Institute Ambassador, National Green Building Standard Verifier; Kevin Stack, LEED Fellow, LEED Faculty, BaDT (Biologist at the Design Table certification from Biomimicry 3.8), HERS Rater, LEED for Homes Green Rater.
