Michael Aw of BCBS presented at BCBEC's luncheon yesterday on the characteristics and aesthetics of charred wood as a cladding material. The presentation was a collaboration between Michael and two of his fellow BCIT students, and drew on the capstone research project that they completed together in their final year.
One of our annual traditions is heading off to Harrison Hot Springs for a weekend in January. We reflect on the successes and challenges of the year, relax and recharge, take the time to get to know our colleagues better, and strengthen our team. This year was particularly special for us, not only because we got to go ice skating on the lagoon, but also because we were celebrating our 20th year in business!
Happy New Year from all of us at BC Building Science! Thank you to everyone who sent us season's greetings and gift baskets. We wish all of you a healthy, wealthy, and water-ingress-free 2017!
We have a new Building Envelope Renovation Project underway in Vancouver...stay tuned for the unveiling in 6 months!
Happy first day of winter! With the change in seasons, don’t forget to check your maintenance manual and have your seasonal maintenance items completed, such as replacement of weather stripping and the cleaning of your gutters and roof drains, especially after these snow storms we've been having. If you don’t have a maintenance manual, we can help! Check out Strata Services for more information.

It's not that we don't like the snow...but the short days and cold weather have us wishing we were on a beach somewhere.
Lots of snow today at the BC Building Science office in New West!
Part of the BCBS team spent yesterday's lunch break discussing concrete waterproofing by crystallization with Brad Pope of Xypex. Parkade repairs using Xypex technology were of particular interest to us.
BC Building Science has the pleasure of working with homeowners, developers and strata councils across British Columbia. One of the owners we are currently consulting for is building an oceanfront getaway on Vancouver Island. The perk for us? We get to travel and see beautiful ocean views like these ones.
