NEBB Discipline: Building Enclosure Testing (BET)
Building Enclosure Testing (BET) is an important and growing field. It addresses a distinct need within the building and construction industry - the ability to test and quantitatively report the performance of the air-tightness of today’s building enclosures.
BET is a process involving evaluation, verification, and documentation that the building’s design and construction meet defined performance expectations. In addition to fewer water leakage/mold issues for both new construction and renovation projects, BET results in better building energy performance through improved thermal performance and decreased air leakage issues.
