Over time, the sectors that drive the economy, the needs and desires of citizens and the metrics of progress change. Buildings and infrastructure serve as important resources that enable such progress to occur. The building industry needs a holistic examination, with targeted investment of resources—including personnel, intellectual and financial capital—to meet the growing demand for high-performance buildings.
The National Institute of Building Sciences Consultative Council serves a unique role in the building industry, bringing together representatives from leading organizations that represent all aspects of design, construction, operation and regulation to examine important issues before the industry.
In 2017, members of the Consultative Council decided to focus on the future. They wanted to explore how the building industry can and should evolve to meet the changing needs of society and how new technologies and practices can attract a 21st century workforce.
