OSCC Extends Survey Deadline to February 15

WASHINGTON, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — The National Institute of Building Sciences Off-Site Construction Council (OSCC) still wants to know how you are using off-site construction practices and methods in your commercial construction work.

NIBS

The OSCC is asking architects, engineers, contractors, construction managers, subcontractors, owners, developers and others in the building industry to take the survey to get an understanding of how the use of off-site construction has changed throughout the industry in the past three years. The Council surveyed the industry back in 2014, and wants to know if the benefits, such as highlighted schedule reductions, overall cost benefits, reduced defects and increased quality, have continued or expanded, and whether the challenges, such as late design changes, lack of collaboration and an adversarial climate for project delivery, have lessened over time. The OSCC will compile the results into a report of findings, and the answers will help OSCC develop tools and resources for industry.

Please share your perspective. The survey, which includes 14 questions, should take about ten minutes to complete. The survey closes Thursday, February 15, 2018 at 5:00 pm ET, but no need to wait. Take the survey now.

The National Institute of Building Sciences was authorized by the U.S. Congress in the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, Public Law 93-383. In establishing the Institute, Congress recognized the need for an organization that could serve as an interface between government and the private sector. The Institute's public interest mission is to serve the Nation by supporting advances in building science and technology to improve the built environment.

Through the Institute, Congress established a public/private partnership to enable findings on technical, building-related matters to be used effectively to improve government, commerce and industry.
