About the 2008 Theme

"Intelligent and Sustainable Buildings"

From increased energy efficiency to integration with the latest information and communication technologies, the world’s attention is focused on commercial, government, and residential buildings that are accessible, safe, and sustainable. In today’s global trade environment, major construction projects often require coordination among many different countries, including important decisions about which building and safety codes apply.

The U.S. Celebration of World Standards Day 2008 will spotlight the critical role of standards and conformity assessment programs in ensuring safety requirements; facilitating coordination among contractors, builders, engineers, and architects; and incorporating new technologies in the design and construction of intelligent and sustainable buildings.
