Product manufacturer Inpro is leading the charge in connecting buildings to their users.  The Building Protection Forum offers the first ever site dedicated solely to protecting buildings and their users.  It offers stakeholders the opportunity to post and respond to questions or problems related to their buildings.

“We have always done obsessive things to make sure our clients can protect their buildings, but this initiative takes that obsession to a whole new level,” said Mark Alan, Senior Vice President of Product Management & Development at Inpro. “This site will finally give everyone from architects to maintenance managers a place to report problems they’re having, and get answers to complex questions.”

Inpro hopes the site and its members and experts will address the following kinds of topics:

  • Keeping facilities clean and maintaining a healthy environment
  • Maintaining appearance from normal usage and damaging abuses
  • Understanding the myriad of building product choices and the long-term impact: the capital cost vs. the operational cost
  • Having a common definition and understanding of sustainable products
  • Keeping up with the changes to environmental certifications and product & health declarations
  • Understanding the legal liabilities associated with the choices made

“Our goal is to create a central hub for all of these discussions and debates,” said Alan. “It will be thrilling to see what happens when people from all different industries and disciplines are brought together in the same place. We expect some amazing new ideas and innovations to emerge.”

Current discussions on the site include:

How do you define sustainable building material within your facility?

What are some of the most important attributes when specifying a product?

The forum is free to join and anyone is welcome.  Once users create a profile they can create new threads or comment on existing discussions.

Inpro is a manufacturer of products such as handrails, privacy curtains, and interior signs, and understands the challenges facing building stakeholders. From shrinking budgets to increasing accountability, these professionals—including architects, designers, contractors and owners—must continually adapt to an ever-changing world. Inpro is hoping to make this adaption process easier by launching the Building Protection Forum.
