EDUCATION AND TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER
BECOR’s education and technology transfer program comprises of monthly “Lunch and Learn” educational seminars. Our program commences in September and runs through until May (our fiscal year-end). On occasion, we have extended our program to include a June session.
BECOR’s seminars tend to be technical in nature and are focused on better building practices, better detailing, failure analysis, investigative methodologies, advanced technologies and techniques in the design, construction and performance of building envelopes. In other words, topics that are top-of-mind to our design and construction community.
Our technical seminars are led by nationally and internationally recognized building envelope experts and specialists as well as leading practitioners in the local community that are adopting and advancing building science knowledge at a practical level; all of whom provide our members with the most up-to-date and relevant information.
Our members not only embody learning as a life-long commitment but as a reality of professional development. Building practices, technologies and materials are ever-changing and one must stay informed, educated and enlightened to succeed now and into the future. In addition, BECOR seminars count towards the continued education requirements as established by the various professional associations.
BECOR’s members represent a broad spectrum of stakeholders in the local building industry: designers, researchers, builders, owners, users, suppliers and authorities. The informal ‘meet and greet’ format that precedes our monthly seminars allows our members to network with other colleagues in the industry; sharing experiences, knowledge and ideas with fellow members or maybe just to share a meal and a few laughs with an old friend.
BECOR’s seminar platform provides an opportunity to promote members in the local community that are undertaking amazing state-of-the-art projects related to building envelope design, construction and performance. In recognition and acknowledgement of their ongoing support and commitment to BECOR’s mandate, the corporate logos of our corporate members are proudly displayed on our website.
