Promote the industry
The building engineer field is the "best kept secret" according to many. The lack of awareness of the career serves as a bottleneck for qualified applicants. Using our library of marketing and outreach materials, you can help us promote the field and attract more talent.
Provide your input
We are a consortium of partners in the high performance building sector. Our membership includes large and small employers, labor organizations, education institutions, nonprofits, and government agencies. Join us to provide your input and ensure a healthy worker pipeline for all.
Invest in Training & Hiring
Our ability to attract talented, qualified job seekers is dependent on companies across the region committing to training and hiring building engineers. Whether you need one engineer next month or 25 over the next year, the best time to invest in your workforce is now.
