Who is the NIBS?
The National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) is a not for profit organization that brings together representatives from many different interest groups and organizations within the construction industry and government agencies, in order to identify and resolve issues that can prevent agreement on what constitutes safe, affordable structures for housing, commerce and industry throughout the United States. The NIBS is authorized by the U.S. Congress to act as an authoritative source and, as such, it provides opportunities for open discussions among the various private and public sectors within the construction and building industry. The NIBS’s mission is to serve the public interest by supporting advances in building sciences and technologies, while improving the performance of our nation's buildings, reducing waste and conserving energy and resources.
