Building Efficiency TAC

Pushing the envelope in building efficiency.

The Building Efficiency Technology Access Centre (BETAC) supports the building industry by helping clients address the challenges of designing and constructing durable, energy-efficient building envelopes, components and assembly in an environment with extreme conditions. Our core purpose is to support the needs of those involved in the design, construction, renovation, commissioning and maintenance of a building’s envelope.

BETAC can assist you by reducing the risk and uncertainty of new building envelope designs and by implementing our expertise in new and innovative products, materials, and testing methods. We also recognize the need to consider the intended use of buildings and the associated potential impacts on the building envelope.
