Building climate resilience within

By Stephanie Becker

It’s almost never cold enough for me these days. I’m at a particular stage in my life when my internal furnace is always set at boiling. So I was thrilled to get assigned a story at the Insurance Institute of Business and Home Safety. It’s a little like the crash test dummies car lab, but for buildings. That’s cool, but it wasn’t what I was excited about. Taking a left on bumpy rural road in Richburg, South Carolina, there it was -- a seven-story wall of gigantic fans. It just about sent shivers down my spine.
