(WASHINGTON, DC, May 25, 2021) – A memorandum of understanding (MoU) has been announced today between representatives for the United Kingdom and the United States of America, cementing a pledge to work together on the development of the U.S. National Building Information Management (BIM) Program.
The conference takes place September 27-29, 2021, and it will feature three tracks: Resilience, Technology, and Workplace.
The U.S. building industry is facing significant challenges: addressing the impacts of climate change; achieving sustainability; assuring asset and community resilience; and managing risk. At the same time, it is widely recognized as a fragmented industry with divergent interests and priorities. The need and the opportunity to address these challenges—that affect the industry and the nation as a whole—has never been more critical, but it must be done through the implementation of strategic and collaborative approaches. At Building Innovation 2016: The National Institute of Building Sciences Fourth Annual Conference & Expo, Achieving a Resilient Future, to be held January 11-15, 2016, in Washington, D.C., participants will examine multiple factors that drive the industry—from people and processes to technology and information—to help establish an effective path forward.
Achieving community resilience relies on the engagement and action of numerous stakeholders—from commercial and residential building owners to utilities and government leaders—and offering incentives provides a powerful mechanism to encourage tough decision making. At Building Innovation 2016: The National Institute of Building Sciences Fourth Annual Conference & Expo, Achieving a Resilient Future, to be held January 11-15, 2016, in Washington, D.C., participants will examine the multiple incentive packages available to these audiences to advance investment in mitigation and resilience.
Each year for its conference, the National Institute of Building Sciences staff looks to enlist expert keynote speakers that will build on the event’s theme while engaging and educating conference attendees. For Building Innovation 2016: The Institute’s Fourth Annual Conference & Expo, scheduled for Monday-Friday, January 11-15, 2016, at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, D.C., the keynote lineup is set to present diverse and informative perspectives on Achieving a Resilient Future.
An unexpected change in location for the upcoming Building Innovation 2016 – the National Institute of Building Sciences Fourth Annual Conference & Expo, to be held January 11-15, 2016, may be a plus for Conference attendees, especially those coming from out of town.
This past Friday, in its October newsletter, the Institute announced an extension of the early-bird registration deadline for the Conference because of an unexpected change in the venue. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Institute has relocated the venue of the event from the Marriott Washington Wardman Park in Washington, D.C., to the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel in Crystal City, located in Arlington, Virginia, directly across the river from downtown Washington, D.C. A major benefit of the new hotel is its location: less than a mile away from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.
