WHO WE ARE
Whether in your home, office or out in your community, the walls that surround you must be safe, structurally sound, and sustainable. It’s our job to make that happen.
The National Institute of Building Sciences is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit, non- governmental organization that supports advances in building science and technology. We were established by the U.S. Congress in the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, Public Law 93-383. Congress recognized the need for an organization to serve as an interface between government and the private sector – one that serves as a resource to those who plan, design, procure, construct, use, operate, maintain, renovate, and retire physical facilities.
We bring together experts from throughout the building industry, design, architecture, construction, and government. We lead conversations to ensure our buildings and communities remain safe, and we work to seek consensus solutions to mutual problems of concern.
