CBE's Industry Consortium

CBE is a place where prominent industry partners and internationally recognized researchers cooperate to produce substantial, holistic, and far-sighted research on buildings.

Program Overview

CBE's research program is supported and guided by its Industry Advisory Board (IAB). Twice a year, in April and October, CBE's research team and advisory board meets to review and comment on active projects, and identify new research topics.

Our Industry Advisory Board mirrors the diversity of the building industry, and includes manufacturers, building owners, facility managers, contractors, architects, engineers, government agencies and professional associations.

CBE's activities are highly visible to suppliers and consumers in the industry, giving the CBE partners recognition as leaders in their fields. CBE has an independent objectivity that benefits the partners in dealing with their clients or with regulators. The pages linked below provide more detail on aspects of membership:
