How to Maximize Your Relationships to Optimize High-Performance Projects

Filed in Multifamily, Sustainability and Green Building by on December 10, 2019 0 Comments

The 2019 Beer and Banter session featured young professionals sharing their professional journeys.

Successful, high-quality home building is a team effort, and collaboration is key. Strong lines of communication with subcontractors, trades, product manufacturers and inspectors can save significant time and money along the way. Third-party National Green Building Standard (NGBS) verifiers have boots on the ground and can be a second set of eyes on your jobsite, bringing significant building science and construction expertise to a project. Partnering with an NGBS verifier from the start can optimize your next high-performance project — single or multifamily — while also increasing cost effectiveness.

Stop by the High Performance Building Zone at the International Builders’ Show on Tuesday, Jan. 21, at 3:30 p.m., grab a beer and hear two builder/verifier teams discuss how they leverage their relationship to build better performing homes. Ask questions and gain insight on how teaming with an NGBS Verifier and making the most of your business relationships can contribute to your home building success during the Are You Making the Most of Your Relationship $tatus?! session.

This is one of two Green Beer & Banter events being held at the High Performance Building Zone, located in North Hall – Booths N135 and N145. The event is open to all IBS registrants; no additional registration needed.
