About the Topic:
Mike’s presentation will provide an overview of the recently published APEGBC Building Enclosure Practice Guidelines. The guidelines were developed by the Building Envelope Committee of APEGBC, of which Mike is a member. The committee reviewed the original 1999 document and other relevant documents, such as AIBC’s Bulletin 34, endorsed by APEGBC, and the published document was reviewed and endorsed by both APEGBC and AIBC governing councils. The guidelines set out the standards of practice that a Building Enclosure Engineer should follow and meet when providing building enclosure engineering services for building projects. The guidelines reflect the current state of practice in jurisdictions where application of independent building science expertise is both mandatory and mature. The logic and contents of the guideline should be of interest to practitioners and building code authorities. Of particular interest to all stakeholders in the industry is the recommended practice associated with letters of assurance in relationship to enclosure engineering.
