Woolpert Senior Strategic Consultant Named Secretary of NIBS Facilities Committee

Your architecture, engineering and geospatial (AEG) firm

Emily Herndon brings her focus on sustainability and efficiency to the national design standards group.

DAYTON, Ohio, Feb. 21, 2019 — (PRNewswire) —

DAYTON, Ohio, Feb. 21, 2019  /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Woolpert Senior Consultant Emily Herndon, LEED AP, has been selected to serve on the board for the National Institute of Building Sciences ( NIBS), Facility Maintenance and Operations Committee ( FMOC). NIBS is a group of industry, government and agency experts who identify and solve issues that would otherwise hamper the construction of safe, affordable structures throughout the U.S. The FMOC works to improve the performance and longevity of buildings through effective maintenance and operation, improved total cost of ownership and life-cycle strategies for the nation's built environment.

NIBS was established by the U.S. Congress in 1974 as a nonprofit, non-governmental organization and is responsible for standards, including the Whole Building Design Guide, Integrated Resilient Design Program and buildingSMART Alliance.

Herndon, who works within the Woolpert Strategic Consulting group, has almost two decades of experience developing and implementing strategic asset management programs, with a focus on how sustainability and efficiency can be applied to the built environment.

"I'm excited to provide the perspective on how to build and operate efficient and sustainable buildings, and how this can help the committee improve national design standards," Herndon said. "I also bring a more holistic, strategic perspective on the concept. Since I'm not an architect, engineer or designer, I can evaluate and contribute to the standards from a more programmatic point of view."

Herndon added that although her perspective is objective, it will give the architects, engineers and designers at Woolpert a distinct advantage, which will then benefit the firm's clients.

"This participation will give the firm consistent insight into where the industry is headed, which always gives you a big leg up on the competition," she said.
