2015 BCBEC Conference & AGM
Building Fundamentals - Put Into Practice

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015
Fairmont Hotel Vancouver
900 West Georgia Street

BCBEC invites you to join us this September for our annual one-day symposium.

This year we will examine how fundamentals in the building envelope industry are put into practice. Industry professionals will explore new and existing technologies, the legislated Building Act and case studies from a range of areas, including building energy requirements, below grade construction, spray foam insulation and the living building challenge.

Be part of the conversation on building envelope fundamentals, new technologies, and research results.

Event eligible for Continuing Education credits.
