A note on COVID-19: Our hearts go out to the people and communities that are being directly impacted by the Coronavirus. We are working remotely to support the safety of our staff, family members and community. NBI efforts continue to make buildings better for people and the planet. NBI staff are available via email, phone, and other conferencing apps. Please support your local communities by heeding government and health care officials' calls for social distancing to protect the vulnerable. We look forward to joining you at events when conditions improve.
