Recent Federal & State Flood Mitigation Grants Awarded Prior to Hurricane Season
The National Institute of Building Sciences Board of Directors recently developed a new three-year strategic plan to guide the organization. The 2023-2025 Strategic Plan includes four major goals, each with specific strategies.
The goal of climate adaptation, mitigation, and resilience requires advancing climate solutions and their adoption in the built environment. Building alliances with public and private sector organizations to develop and deploy innovative solutions is critical to this mission.
NIBS also must drive interdisciplinary and interorganizational collaboration resulting in the development of policies, codes, and standards. The organization also must share knowledge to advance resilient and sustainable communities.

This course will discuss considerations for the holistic design and construction of durable, long-lasting structures that are sustainable, safe and resilient. A building's primary goal is to protect the lives, lifestyles and livelihoods of its occupants. Precast concrete has numerous qualities that can help buildings perform efficiently and offer occupants and communities healthy, flexible and useful spaces that can be effectively utilized over many years. Attendees will have the chance to see and hear case studies of projects that used precast concrete for durability, resilience, and sustainability, and examine important qualities and attributes to consider when specifying the material.
This session of the Infrastructure 2022 webinar series will highlight disaster preparation projects to address worsening natural disasters. The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) is the largest-ever federal investment in climate change.
The National Institute of Building Sciences continues its mission to provide an open forum for discussion among the various facets of the building sector.
2020 was a year we will never forget—from natural disasters and social unrest to a pandemic that followed us into 2021. NIBS' monthly webinar series addresses how a year of unique challenges can ultimately build resilience in our communities, our infrastructure and the places we live, work, learn and play.
