COVID 19 resources relevant to buildings
A note on COVID-19: Our hearts go out to the people and communities that are being directly impacted by the Coronavirus. We have taken steps to support the safety of our staff, family members and community. As we all adjust to a new normal of remote work and substantial disruptions to our usual routines, and in light of rapidly changing global health conditions, NBI continues to work on solutions to make buildings better for people and the planet. NBI staff are all available, as usual, via email, phone and other conferencing apps. We look forward to joining our colleagues and friends at events when conditions improve. We are exploring new ways to engage with you and leveraging familiar platforms for communications during these unparalleled times. Please support your local communities at this time by heeding government and health care officials' calls for social distancing and protecting the vulnerable. Keep in touch and let us know if there is anything we can support you and your organization during this period.
