Abstract: Designing and constructing resilient built assets requires an in-depth understanding of the expertise and knowledge on avoiding and mitigating the effects of disasters in order to secure a safe and sustainable future. For this reason, professionals involved with the construction industry, and the expertise they can offer, need to understand the principles of, and become more involved with Disaster Risk Management (DRM) if lessons are to be learnt from the past and a resilient built environment created for future generations. Currently however, there is a lack of guidance and poor levels of involvement in DRM activities on the part of key construction stakeholders. In light of these findings, the ongoing PRE-EMPT Project is developing a toolkit to support the structured integration of DRM (and particularly resilience) strategies into the construction sector's decision-making processes. Early research findings from questionnaires and interviews are presented which demonst rate that the pre-construction/post-disaster reconstruction phase is identifi ed as the critical stage of the Design -Construction- Operation Process when DRM activities (such as hazard mitigation) should be undertaken by people such as architects/designers, structural and civil engineers, urban planners, specialist contractors and emergency/risk managers.
