Center for Infrastructure and Society (CIS) is dedicated to pushing the construction industry beyond its own barriers. The drive to build faster and cheaper is not a solution to the world’s built environment problems. We bring together construction industry resources to ensure a regenerative future for our planet. We are builders, designers, educators, planners and artists.
A Message From Founder and Executive Director, Adam Sgrenci
Though it's still early days for CIS - after launching in early 2019 - we've come a very long way. It's hard to say exactly how we've done this so quickly. Our reach has gone from local to global seemingly overnight. Today we are collaborating with schools, nonprofits, agricultural centers, tech startups, brick-and-mortar builders and construction CSRs. Perhaps it was just the right timing for against-the-grain ideas.
As a forever student, I have learned so much from CIS's initial collaborators, consultants and team members. Thank you all for taking this leap of faith with me. As Peter would tell us, "Onward and Awkward!"
