Welcome to the Journal of the National Institute of Building Sciences (JNIBS), published through a relationship with Stamats Commercial Buildings Group. Each edition focuses on different aspects of the built environment, such as building enclosure design; building information modeling; security and disaster preparedness; and industry leadership and advocacy. Articles highlight cutting-edge research, case studies and the newest technologies in the building industry, as well as the latest activities of the Institute’s Councils, Committees and Programs.

Our latest issue focuses on the building enclosure. The building enclosure is the dynamic membrane between the indoor and outdoor environments. It plays a key role in achieving resilience and energy efficiency. How to attain these goals is addressed in the Autumn issue of the Journal of the National Institute of Building Sciences (JNIBS).
