Collaboration is the foundation of the National Institute of Building Sciences. NIBS brings together an elite community of thinkers, innovators, educators and creators across all sectors of the built environment to solve critical issues facing the industry.
Members are invited to have a seat at the table where these discussions take place—they collaborate to develop and implement technical and procedural improvements within NIBS’ councils, committees and programs. Together, NIBS members are working together to build a better tomorrow.
Our members are made up of individuals, public and private sector organizations, non-profits and local, state and federal government officials. These members play a wide range of roles within the built environment.
WHAT OUR MEMBERS HAVE TO SAY
It has been an interesting journey. I started with NIBS, as I was interested in the work of the BIM Council. I wanted to keep up with the current practices and trajectories of BIM and where it was envisioned to go. It is rewarding and inspiring to be involved in the industry transformation at this scale.
Carrie Dossick, Associate Dean of Research
University of Washington's College of Built Environments
BSI is a leading global standards, certification, and testing body with its head office in London. In 2021, BSI established an exciting partnership with the National Institute of Building Sciences. Our relationship started with a strategic goal to implement and standardize building information modelling (BIM) in the U.S. The partnership enables and strengthens collaboration between the U.S. and UK, encouraging the sharing of knowledge and best practice to promote the use of standards across the BE sector. We value our partnership with NIBS and look forward to more collaboration and thought leadership going forward.

NIBS is the most comprehensive organization for the built environment, and I have experienced amazing events that push the industry forward in very meaningful and actionable ways.

If you are looking for knowledge and innovation that motivates, while understanding business risks in a very practical way, become a member of NIBS.

Anne Cope, Chief Engineer
As an active construction code professional for the past 25 years, I find NIBS uniquely positioned to provide the built environment an invaluable resource. The work performed provides unseen benefits across the country … what an honor it is to serve and be a part of a group of individuals who selflessly work to improve codes and standards to ensure a better tomorrow.
