The National Institute of Building Sciences Board of Directors developed the 2023-2025 Strategic Plan to guide the organization. The plan includes four major goals, each with specific strategies.
With the goal of transformational building sciences and technologies, NIBS aims to promote convergent research and emerging technologies. Strategies to this goal involve nurturing and promoting creativity and innovation to advance technology. NIBS also aims to remove barriers to accelerate technology acceptance and adoption and advance innovative technology awareness and implementation.
NIBS aims to promote convergent research and transformational technologies by:

Cyber-Physical Impact Modeling Webinar
The risk profile of current and emerging cyber threats to commercial and institutional building sites cannot be overstated. Sites include and may not be limited to critical utilities such as electric, water and waste management, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, airports, stadiums, office buildings, prisons, and courts. Protecting these sites from bad actions or errors from employees can minimize outside takeover of operational systems, risk to loss of life, personal injury, and harm to the environment.Learn more
Building Technology and Retrofits
Building Information Management and Modeling are two keys to unlocking the success of existing building retrofits. Implementation of these strategies and tools optimize the design and construction process. Building Information Modeling has the capacity to coordinate numerous types of data input, such as energy models and 3-D design, which offers architects, engineers, and contractors the ability to visualize and simulated projects before they are built.Learn more
This summer, the National Institute of Building Sciences Building Information Management (BIM) Council will host a three-part hearing entitled, The State of Digital Delivery in the Age of Information Privacy and Cyber Security. This series will convene a group of experts within the built environment to discuss the impacts of security regulations on the drive toward BIM-enabled project delivery and operations. As we face challenges to cybersecurity and real threats to the built environment caused by cyberterrorism and security breaches, we are grappling with the increasing desire and practical demand for more efficient collaborative digital delivery.Learn more
