Our Mission

The Seattle Building Enclosure Council  (SeaBEC) is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to promote the pursuit of excellence in the design, construction, or other technical aspects of the building enclosure. We investigate why buildings fail, explore cures for building enclosure failure, and share information on materials and methods to promote better building science.
