As a member of the American Institute of Building Design, we have met the requirements of the AIBD by laws and the work experience standards deemed necessary to gain comprehensive knowledge of the profession of building design.
The American Institute of Building Design maintains a registry of Building Designers who have demonstrated outstanding competence in the field. Those people so certified are permitted to use the title of Certified Professional Building Designer, which can only be appointed by the National Council of Building Designer Certification. Certified members are deemed qualified to perform services required in any portion of planning, design, and construction as permitted in their state of residence or practice.
Every state, county, and municipality has its own codes, zoning requirements, ordinances, and building regulations.
