Welcome to The BEC-KC

The Building Enclosure Council (BEC) initiative was established by an agreement between the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the Building Enclosure Technology and Environment Council (BETEC) of the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) on May 18, 2004.

The purpose of the Councils is to promote and encourage discussion, training, education, technology transfer, the exchange of information about local issues and cases, relevant weather conditions, and all matters concerning building enclosures and the related science.

The Kansas City Chapter was established in the fall of 2008.

In 2015 the BEC-Kansas City Chapter hosted the BEST 4 Conference.   It is a great honor to have been selected as the hos City and have the premier leaders in building enclosures visit Kansas City.
