• Building Envelope Consultants and Scientists

Higher educational facilities encompass a multitude of structures, needs, and requirements. Their primary goal is to minimize disruption and seek pragmatic solutions to their projects. BECS understands the nuances of working with higher education facilities. We integrate into existing project teams and work closely with facility managers to address all facets of their building enclosure.

We understand that the approach to projects vastly differs from classrooms to laboratories to stadiums. That’s why BECS looks at access, contamination prevention, minimized disruption, and others that affect higher education specifically. We draw on our experience to assist our high educational clients to schedule and phase projects as needed to ensure a project delivery that is within budget and time frames. BECS will help our clients address current and future maintenance cycles to ensure building longevity and service life, as well as, estimate return on investment timelines for performance enhancements.

BECS identified that to provide the best solutions to our clients, we need to ensure the expertise of performance testing should be at our client’s fingertips. Therefore, we developed BECS Labs. BECS Labs provides field and laboratory testing capabilities to fully support our building envelope consultants. We bring the experience and foremost experts in the industry to the science of the building envelope and its performance. BECS Labs can test the performance of the building and therefore bring to the project actionable data. We will test how your current building performs and test products to ensure they have the capacity to keep the inside in and the outside out.
