National Construction Goals

July 1996, 28 pages

The National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) convened a workshop of representatives of the building community to address the National Construction Goals as they relate to planning, designing, constructing, operating, and maintaining commercial and institutional facilities.

The workshop was held in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, July 16, 1996, at the headquarters of the American Institute of Architects. The purpose of the workshop was to identify actions required to achieve the goals and to in turn identify who should be responsible. The workshop was to focus on the need to bring technological innovations (both products and processes) into construction, and to determine responsibilities and priorities for Research and Development (R&D).

The National Construction Goals are an outgrowth of the cabinet-level National Science and Technology Council, which was charged with coordinating the $70 billion spent annually on federal research and development. The Goals were developed by the Council's Subcommittee on Construction and Building, involving 16 federal agencies.

The National Construction Goals, as currently stated, are to achieve:
