• Building Envelope Consultants and Scientists


Some of the best training and business relationships are achieved and developed by becoming involved with professional organizations that produce industry standards and guidelines and set the bar for industry protocol. Bridging the gap between those organizations and our clients requires strategic placement of specialty knowledge individuals within specific groups. We take pride in our involvement in a selective group of professional trade organizations and also the client-based organizations they serve.

BECS engineers and technicians use diagnostic techniques to evaluate structural distress and deterioration, and load test methods to verify structural performance. Our methods are based upon industry standards and code requirements established by professional organizations such as American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), American Concrete Institute (ACI), International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI), Association for Preservation Technology (APT), Brick Industry Association (BIA), Sealant Waterproofing and Restoration Institute (SWRI), International Institute of Building Enclosure Consultants (IBEC), American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA), and The Masonry Advisory Council (MAC).

Below are a few organizations BECS is proud to support and contribute to.
