Niles Bolton University
Niles Bolton University (NBU) is an in-house continuing education program consisting of several types of lectures and presentations. Offering over 100+ AIA accredited classes per year, there is plenty of opportunity for growth and learning at NBA. The mission of our NBU program is to help our staff grow professionally and personally and aid all of us into becoming better individuals and team members.
Vendor presentations consist of manufacturers, distributors and consultants that bring AIA accredited programs to educate staff on various components of construction, such as engineering services for design and construction materials used on projects.
NBU Roundtables & Sustainability
Roundtables differ in format and are hosted by NBA staff. A topic may be presented with a slide show or a panel with multiple speakers, encouraging an open discussion of the topic. The goal is to broaden the knowledge base through open exchange of experience, solutions and ideas.
Consultant, vendor and in-house staff hosted sustainability presentations cover current trends, innovations and office standards in sustainable design. Similar to the roundtables, these lunchtime meetings consist of presentations, panel discussions and open roundtable conversations.

Risk Management Seminars
"You cannot manage what you do not grasp, knowledge will help you stay ahead of risk." - AIA.org
Risks can stem from a wide variety of sources and being able to identify, assess and control these threats is essential to the architectural practice.
Sessions are taught by our Revit Committee, experienced staff who know all things Revit. These sessions range from the introduction of our office standards to implementation of advance tools and building modeling techniques.
