DBIA partners with the Charles Pankow Foundation (CPF) to conduct research that advances the state of practice in the design and construction industry. The CPF research program focus is driven by the Foundation’s mission:
The Charles Pankow Foundation exists to advance innovations in building
design and construction, so as to provide the public with buildings
of improved quality, efficiency, and value.
The CPF program goals include delivering solutions in building design and construction through scientific research grants that will:
- Improve and advance methods, technologies, and tools;
- Result in research products that will benefit the public with buildings of improved quality, efficiency, and value; and
- Diffuse solutions into adoption by practitioners, for public benefit
