The Kansas Building Science Institute is a vocational school located in Manhattan, Kansas. The Institute conducts week-long Home Energy Rater Trainings (HERS) as well as Building Performance Index (BPI) and Weatherization (WX) Trainings, among others.[1]

Training Center[edit]

The Institute conducts trainings in a 3,000-square-foot (280 m2) multi-purpose classroom and training center in Manhattan. The campus also includes a furnace lab, a mobile home for Weatherization Trainings, and an attached house to perform test ratings and inspections on. Other houses around Manhattan are also used for this purpose.[2]


In 2013, KBSI's home energy rating providership - Energy and Environmental Rating Alliance - was suspended by RESNET for improper QA records and activity. This caused a mass exile of their clients, rendering their providership extremely small and unprofessional in less than one year.[3]
