about
Innovative Solutions for the Built Environment

The National Institute of Building Sciences

Our mission is to serve the public interest by advancing building science and technology to improve the built environment.

We bring together labor and consumer interests, government representatives, regulatory agencies, and members of the building industry to identify and resolve problems that hamper the construction of safe, affordable housing and commercial structures throughout the country. NIBS is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization that was established by Congress in 1974.
