IIBEC Interface is the technical journal of the International Institute of Building Enclosure Consultants (IIBEC). The association intends that IIBEC Interface educate and inform, establish common ground for discussion, and provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and technical knowledge. Its focus is on design issues related to developing and maintaining optimal performance of new and existing buildings’ exterior envelopes. IIBEC Interface is published eleven times per year.
A poll of subscribers indicated that most subscribers read IIBEC Interface “cover to cover” and save the journal for future reference. There is frequent inner-office circulation of IIBEC Interface, with memos noting particular points of interest for their colleagues.
IIBEC Interface is a vital source of information for building enclosure materials specifiers. Nonspecifier readers include: facility managers, government officials, insurance executives, and industry product representatives.
