BECx As Risk Management
The new College Station Branch of IIBEC is excited to be hosting its first meeting! The upcoming presentation is free thanks to the sponsorship of the North American Building Compliance Testing Association (NABCTA). Please join us as we kick off this new branch!
For years, we've focused on commissioning a building's dynamic systems for overall performance, assuming the static exterior envelope would perform well too. Recently, commissioning the exterior envelope (Cx) has gained importance for optimal building performance due to factors like updated codes, incentives (like LEED credits), and a surge in construction defect lawsuits related to the envelope. This presentation explains how envelope commissioning mitigates risks tied to exterior design, construction, and potential litigation.
