Residential Design Specialists

Building a home incurs the greatest financial burden most people will face in a lifetime, and yet few envision how complex the process is until they are tangled in a jungle of codes, ordinances, house plan options, and product and contractor choices.

When a new home or home improvement project is in your future, a specialist in residential design is the best choice to guide you through the design/building experience. It makes sense to secure design services from a qualified, experienced source, a member of the American Institute of Building Design (AIBD).

Since 1950, AIBD has provided its members with educational resources and developed nationwide design standards and a code of ethics for the building design profession. Today AIBD is a nationally recognized association with professional, associate, and affiliate members in 47 states and throughout Canada, as well as Europe, Asia, and Australia. Its chartered societies are active in their respective legislative arenas and work to promote public awareness of the building design profession and emphasize the role we fill as a valuable resource for residential design services.
Our Mission

AIBD, NCS is committed to establishing and maintaining professional relationships with other organizations in the design and construction industry, whose products and services contribute to promoting better building design in North Carolina. We strive to provide our membership with the latest information on code and legislative issues, new technology and new building products that are unique to our region. By providing continuing education that is tailored to regional conditions, we equip our members to better serve the public. In addition, we will strive to promote student membership and the formation of student chapters.

To enter the Member Services area you will need to click on the “Login” tab in the upper right corner of the page. You will then be prompted to enter your username and password. Your username is your first initial and your last name, your password is “password”. (I would suggest that you change this password once you get into the member profile section since all members will have the same “password”) You will need to click on the “Login” button in the center of the screen to enter the Member Services area. Once you enter the Member Services area you will see links to areas where you can create and modify member content.

Update My Profile

This is where you will setup your contact information to be displayed on the website.

The first 2 lines are for names and numbers you can edit this as you choose, but remember that your username will not change when you edit these lines.

Under the “Edit Password” section you should create a password that is uniquely yours and one that you will remember. The system administrator can assign a new password, if you should forget yours, but can not identify current passwords. Each member should create their own password as in the initial setup of member files all members were given the password of “password”, this must be changed to prevent modifications of your profile.

The “AIBD NC Web Site Status:” setting should be toggled to “Inactive” at this time. Once you have created a Member Page, and tested it you can come back and change this setting.
