The Building Commissioning Association (BCA) Eastern Canadian Chapter (ECC) proudly presents a webinar on Building Envelope Commissioning (BECx). Many professionals are familiar with the commissioning process as it applies to MEP systems, but what does it mean to commission a building’s envelope? How is this process similar to more common MEP commissioning practices and where does it differ? Please join us for a session to examine the basics of the BECx process and learn how it can be utilized to ensure owners get the building enclosure they are paying for.
