As you may know, the National Institute of Building Sciences was established by the U.S. Congress to improve the built environment through engagement of the entire building industry. The Institute is interested in advancing the discussion around the role of off-site construction in improving building processes and the achievement of high-performance building goals.
The Institute’s Off-Site Construction Council is a knowledge center on issues of off-site construction and productivity in the commercial building sector. The council is a research, education and outreach organization focused on the creation, management and transfer of off-site construction knowledge. As part of that role, the Off-Site Construction Council is conducting a survey of representatives from across building disciplines to understand the current extent of projects that use off-site construction technologies and practices; their successes or shortcomings; and the opportunity to address industry needs in utilization of these techniques.
Please consider answering and passing along this short survey to help advance our industry and support achievement of high-performance buildings. The survey will close Friday, September 19, 2014, end of business day.
Thank you in advance.
Henry L. Green, Hon. AIA
