Risk management is presently possible to management by a number of techniques, whether it is personal, natural disaster, business, and computer risk. Risk management can be broken down even further to prevention, assessment, and contingency planning. Through research and development, this project details and tests a risk procedure that focuses on the previously mentioned tasks. This procedure will be tested with various on-campus buildings. Conclusions will be mentioned on the potential risks of the buildings.
