The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) is participating in events surrounding national High-Performance Building Week in the nation’s capital.
Organized by a coalition of building industry stakeholders that support the High-Performance Building Coalition (HPBC), the annual event seeks to inform and stimulate discussion about the benefits — water/energy conservation, improved safety/environmental quality — derived from high- performance buildings and practices. The focus and theme of this year’s event is to help policymakers understand “The Critical Role Buildings Play in America’s Infrastructure.”
The HPBC is a private sector coalition providing guidance and support to the High-Performance Buildings Caucus of the U.S. Congress. Dain Hansen, IAPMO’s Senior Vice President of Government Relations, is HPBC Chairman. The HPBC was formed to heighten awareness and inform policymakers about the major impact buildings have on our health, safety, and welfare, and the opportunities to design, construct, and operate high-performance buildings that reflect our concern for these impacts.
