Join the Durham School for the 2022 'Future of the Building Industry' (FoBI) Workshop, scheduled for May 23-24, 2022, at the Scott Conference Center in Omaha, Nebraska!  This 1.5-day workshop features invited speakers and participants from academia and industry, coming together to brainstorm and take actions towards realizing high-performance, sustainable and healthy ‘smart infrastructure’ of the future.  Each year, the FoBI workshop theme is expected to change; the 2022 workshop aims to connect research on indoor environmental quality, sensing and controls to the current challenges and opportunities of living environments for aging adults.


The FoBI workshop is followed immediately by the half-day Durham School PhD Symposium (afternoon of May 24), during which PhD Fellows invited to attend the FoBI workshop are asked to present their scholarly work to each other and to Durham School faculty and students.  The Durham School plans to host the FoBI Workshop and PhD Symposium every year for the foreseeable future.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to any member of the FoBI organizing committee for more information.
