Building Innovation Committee

blondell-at-grdb.jpgThe BIA Building Innovation Committee was formed to promote the understanding and practice of environmentally sustainable building techniques in the Philadelphia construction industry. The goal is to encourage design strategies and construction methods that lessen negative impacts on the environment and benefit the health and well being of occupants.

In 2018, the committee will be exploring innovative ways to manage stormwater run-off from residential developments; looking at how the green roof density bonus has been applied to date and encouraging additional incentives; and educating members on high-performance housing, including available energy efficiency programs and incentives.
