NIBS Releases Recommendations for the Trump Administration

06/19/2017 |

The National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) recently sent a number of building-related recommendations to the Trump Administration

It's no secret that the new Trump Administration is poised to shake things up in many FM realms, including the elimination of ENERGY STAR and rolling back regulations and requirements.  

NIBS offered a number of actions that the Trump Administration; federal agencies; state and local governments; and the building industry can take to achieve safer, high-performance buildings and communities that will save the government, businesses, building owners and families money in the long term.

Among those included in NIB's Recommendations for the 45th President, the over-arching priorities listed are:

  • Make buildings more resilient to natural disasters
  • Protect federal investments
  • Facilitate government’s relationship with the private sector
  • Support businesses and homeowners
  • Establish and maintain a skilled workforce

From seismic safety to building information modeling, members of the NIBS’ councils and committees—among them some of the most renowned experts in their respective fields—address a wide range of building-related issues. Over the course of its 43-year history, the non-profit, non-governmental organization has offered presidents, the U.S. Congress and federal agencies input, testimonies and recommendations on a host of building topics. NIBS continues to remain a non-partisan authoritative source for the federal government and the nation’s building industry.

The full Recommendations for the 45th President are available here.
