Event Description

The National Institute of Building Sciences Innovation Conference and Expo brings together a unique set of individuals to share ideas, initiatives, practices and policies to optimize building performance and sustainability --government agencies, contractors, the private sector, architects, scientists and more--to improve the built environment. The conference will cover three hot topics in the built environment over three days. Each day will conclude with an expert-led session that will bring together topics from the day. Topics include:

Resilience - NIBS and the American Institute of Architects define resiliency as the ability to prepare and plan for, absorb, recover from, and more successfully adapt to adverse events. Disasters are expensive, but most destruction can be prevented with cost-effective mitigation and advanced planning. 

Technology - New and advanced technologies rapidly are developed and deployed across the building industry, with major potential shifts in how the industry conducts day-to-day business. In addition to research and development into new technologies, the industry must be prepared for how these technologies will be adopted and utilized.

Workforce - The building industry faces many workforce challenges, from skills gaps to labor shortages. Today’s building workforce requires unprecedented technological, social, cultural, political, and economic savvy -- all at a time when fewer individuals are entering the trades industry.
