Meetings Begin Today for NGBS Update


Work on the 2015 edition of the National Green Building Standard (NGBS) is now officially under way as members of the NGBS consensus committee have arrived in Washington, D.C. for their first meetings, which take place at the National Housing Center — NAHB’s headquarters — June 9-10.

Builders, manufacturers, trade associations, building code and government officials and other industry professionals have already submitted their ideas to improve the current NGBS, and their nearly 300 proposals are posted here.

You can also view a list of consensus committee members, the timeline of events, and anything else you need to know about the development of the updated standard by visiting the National Green Building Standard Update Process page on the Home Innovation Research Labs, which again is administering the process for NAHB, the International Code Council and ASHRAE, who together are developing the new edition.

The consensus committee chair is Texas home builder Robert Ross, who served as chair of NAHB’s Energy Subcommittee, part of the Construction, Codes and Standards Committee.
