A review of and discussion of the updated, “Engineers and Geoscientists BC Professional Practice Guidelines on Building Enclosure Engineering” that was recently published on February 4, 2020. The guidelines, endorsed by AIBC, address a practice area shared by both Architects and Engineers. The presentation will provide an overview of the guidelines covering appropriate use of various accountability documents such as Letters of Assurance, and the roles and responsibilities of the various project participants and stakeholders, including which professional assumes overall responsibility for the building enclosure design. The presentation is useful not only to industry professionals, but also to contractors, authorities having jurisdiction, manufacturers and other stakeholders in the building enclosure industry.
