Theme: Building Enclosures that Last

A long-lasting building is a sustainable building because its impact on the environment is lowered through the conservation of materials. At this year's fourth annual Wagdy Anis Symposium, we will explore how the building enclosure can contribute to extending the lifespan of a building through its durability, maintainability, and its ability to accommodate future change.

About the Building Enclosure Council

The Boston Building Enclosure Council (B-BEC) is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to promote technical excellence in the design and construction of the building enclosure. B-BEC is led by architects and building enclosure experts, to provide a forum where members of the design and construction industry can discuss common issues and share information on materials and methods, with the goal of promoting the well-informed application of building science to construction of commercial and residential buildings. We support this mission through monthly meetings and periodic special events, featuring panels, presentations, discussions and related activities.
