The Brag Sessions

With the pandemic dragging on, the cold weather upon on us, and many people putting winter travel plans on hold, we could use some ‘happy time’. So, January’s session is dedicated to allowing building envelope professionals to brag about a cool project they have completed. Not only that, to ensure that ‘happy time’, all presentations will show the good in building envelope projects, without dwelling on design or construction flaws.

Watch this presentation about cool projects, and of course (since it’s BECOR), let’s learn some new stuff while we are at it.

Presentations include:

  • 79-foot Long Low-slope Metal Roof System by Garland Canada.
  • Window Refurbishment is a Cost Effective Option by Groupe Fenstra.
  • 10 Years After: Congress Centre Transformed into Shaw Centre by Paterson Group.
