BECx As Risk Management 

For years, we've focused on commissioning a building's dynamic systems for overall performance, assuming the static exterior envelope would perform well too. Recently, commissioning the exterior envelope (Cx) has gained importance for optimal building performance due to factors like updated codes, incentives (like LEED credits), and a surge in construction defect lawsuits related to the envelope. This presentation explains how envelope commissioning mitigates risks tied to exterior design, construction, and potential litigation.

Learning Objectives:

  1. The History of BECx (The legal environment, Influences, Roofing, Windows and Flashings)

  2. The Cx Process (Construction Cx, What's Driving Demand, Hurtles)

  3. Navigating the Cx Process (The Basics, Predesign & Design, Construction, Delivery)

  4. Understanding BECx Testing (Lab Testing, Field Testing)
