Buildings, Building Owners & Operators

Workers, customers, owners and operators are all impacted by the performance of the building they work, eat, worshop or spend time in. Studies show that high performance buildings result in more productive workers, more satisfied customers, greater market value and less maintenance.  All these benefits come with high performance design, construction and maintenance, which also reduces environmental impacts from buildings. NCBPA provides these resources to support commercial and industrial consumer education:
