The National Institute of Building Sciences has released the schedule of testimony for the Representative Hearing on Productivity and the Workforce, to be held September 25, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm EDT, at the Institute’s Headquarters in Washington, D.C.

The hearing, which is being sponsored by Autodesk and supported by the International Code Council, provides representatives from the planning, design, construction, operations, ownership, finance, insurance, regulatory, manufacturing, academia and other segments of the U.S. building industry an opportunity to speak about the challenges they face and offer potential solutions.

The twelve respondents who requested an opportunity to provide oral testimony will bring to the table a wide variety of building industry perspectives. Speakers include representatives from academia (from both state-funded and independent universities); member associations; commercial real estate service providers; industry consultants; and manufacturers. View the hearing schedule.

Dorothy Robyn, Past Commissioner, Public Buildings Service, U.S. General Services Administration; Institute President Henry L. Green, Hon. AIA; and Charles L. Greco, President of the Associated General Contractors of America and Chairman of Linbeck, will preside over the hearing. Sue Klawans, Past Institute Board Member and Director of Operational Excellence and Planning at Gilbane Building Company, is serving as an industry advisor for development of the hearing and resultant outputs.

Though the deadline to provide oral testimony has passed, the Institute will continue to accept written testimony through October 10. View the procedures for submitting written testimony.

The hearing is free and open to the public. However, in order to get an accurate count of the number of people planning to attend, the Institute requests that participants register in advance. Sign up now to attend the hearing.
