The purpose of the BEC:
- To provide a focus/forum at the local level for those with an interest in the enclosure (envelope) of buildings and related building science
- To promote and encourage discussion, training, education, technology transfer, and exchange of information about local and national issues and cases, relevant weather conditions, etc.
- To initiate and promote cross-disciplinary and cross-responsibility dialogue – laterally between professions and vertically between designers, consultants, educators, manufacturers, suppliers, fabricators, constructors, building operators, developers, insurers, etc.
- To facility improvements in relation to process – namely, inspections, approvals, regulations, stands, liability etc.
We welcome participation by anyone interested in exploring the challenges, pitfalls, and opportunities of the building enclosure, particularly in this climate zone and code jurisdiction.
