BESS 2011

The Cal Poly Pomona Department of Architecture and Simpson Gumpertz & Heger Inc. are pleased to announce “Building Enclosure Sustainability Symposium – Integrating Design & Building Practices” (BESS 2011), a two-day, peer-reviewed technical symposium to explore the state-of-the-art in professional and academic approaches and experiences related to integrating design and building practices for sustainable building enclosures.

Building enclosures serve a crucial role in sheltering building occupants from environmental forces and promoting aesthetic and/or bio-climatic expression. Increasingly, design and building professionals are using new tools and techniques to work to integrate design and building practices and teams to create more efficient, high-performing and cost-effective sustainable building enclosures. This symposium promotes integrated practice by bringing together students, faculty, and professionals in the building disciplines to present and discuss their different and shared experiences. The Symposium will be held on the Cal Poly Pomona campus on April 29-30, 2011. For more information, please visit http://www.bessymposium.org/.
