The AIA Housing and Community Development Knowledge Community (HCD) is a network of architects and allied stakeholders that promotes equity in housing, excellence in residential design, and sustainable, vibrant communities for all, through education, research, awards, and advocacy.
Starting on 1/5/2017, AIA members can apply to be on the Consensus Committee (which votes on proposed changes to the standard) and/or Task Groups (which apply their expertise to review propose changes). We should consider having AIA members represented in each Task Group area (if we can recruit them) and on the Consensus Committee. Based on my discussion with Michelle, most of the increased use in the NGBS was being driven by users of the IgCC that selected the NGBS compliance path for multi-family buildings. Please note that Home Innovations Lab has seen a spike in projects using Low Income Tax Credit program. They expect to review proposed changes to the task group area of multi-family and increasing options for the performance path.#NGBS #housing
