Government of Canada Invests in B.C’s Building Science Sector
SMT Research would like to congratulate British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT). The Building Science Centre of Excellence at BCIT was awarded funding support from Western Economic Diversification Canada, to expand its research infrastructure.
Jason Teetaert, SMT VP Business Development, and BC Building Envelope Council President spoke in the construction industry's support of the Western Economic Diversivation funding:
In these days of “Doing More with Less”, the building is industry is
being asked to:
“Provide more complex building assemblies, in less construction time”
“Provide tighter building enclosures, with more moisture sensitive
“While providing Innovation – with reduced budgets”
“Providing Sustainable building practices with regards to toxicity,
energy use, and use of less human resources….
Doing “More with Less” does not mean “Less Research”, or “Less Innovation”,
or with “Less Education” – to the contrary… this is why we as an Industry
support BCIT Education and Research Initiatives in Building Science.”
