Building Innovation 2016, Achieving a Resilient Future is the theme for National Institute of Building Sciences' Annual Conference

This week all of the building industry players will gather together to collaborate on important industry-wide solutions. Building Innovation 2016: The National Institute of Building Sciences Fourth Annual Conference & Expo, January 11-15, 2016, at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel in Metro Washington, D.C., is set to coordinate the efforts of all disciplines toward Achieving a Resilient Future. The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) is the Conference’s Technical Programs Sponsor.

High-performance and resilient communities and buildings are on the horizon, but coordination and collaboration across all disciplines is required to cross the finish line. The National Institute of Building Sciences serves as the convener of the U.S. building industry.
