IBHS Educates at IBS Show

January 25th, 2013 by Editor

The Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) partnered with the National Institute for Building Science (NIBS) to teach a unique class about the science of building high performance homes at the 2013 International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas.

“We want people to understand that how they choose to make a home sustainable may negatively impact its resilience and durability,” said IBHS’ Fred Malik, a former home builder who now heads the Institute’s FORTIFIED Program. “Sustainable homes are terrific, but they won’t be very green if they end up as debris in a landfill following a natural disaster.”

“Building science and the research IBHS is doing are making it possible for builders and homeowners to make informed decisions to improve the performance of their homes on a daily basis as well as under extreme weather conditions.”
