"I attended the first BEC Conference and was impressed by the cogent and entertaining presentations that sharpened and consolidated my knowledge regarding building envelope issues and our industry. BESI takes no point of view, but recognizes the economic costs of not being educated and using best practices in building envelope integrity. I also was pleased at the geographic and professional background diversity of the attendees. Their perspectives provided another level of education for me and my colleagues."

"The seminar was intense, but very educational as Scott 'Spiderman' Mulholland presented the material in an energetic and thought provoking manner. I feel fortunate to have been in the first group to go thru the training and look forward to attending future BESI training sessions."

"At 66, with over 4 decades in the field of construction and forensics, I was shocked to see how much is out there on the study of building envelopes. These BESI courses fill a void that has long existed in the industry. The use of real situations and most appropriate corrective measures were some of the best educational tools I have ever received."
Lewis O'Leary, BEC-2
The following brief video discusses the new Building Envelope Courses.
From the foundation to the highest apex of the roof, the building envelope encompasses all aspects of a building's structure. A structurally sound building envelope is critical to ensure safety and optimize a building's life expectancy and reduce reparation costs. At the Building Envelope Science Institute (BESI), our experts train and certify industry professionals using over twenty-five (25) years of building envelope knowledge and field experience.
