The National Institute of Building Sciences has built many long-term relationships with different agencies and organizations. Our members and partners are critical to our mission and the support of the built environment.

Kimon Onuma, President of Onuma, Inc., said the company has been working with NIBS for more than 16 years.

“NIBS is a fusion of private and public sector owners, consultants, collaborators and competitors eager to share knowledge, innovate and move the industry faster,” Onuma said.

NIBS also promotes open and seamless data-sharing, which enables Onuma to rapidly build agile web-based and useful solutions.

This past spring, NIBS launched a membership campaign to raise awareness, recruit new members, and engage those who support our mission and success.

The campaign – #ThisIsNIBS – features testimonial videos by members sharing their favorite part about being in our community.

Next, we feature Yuqing Hu, Director of the DII Lab at the College of Engineering at Penn State.
