IIBEC Interface is the technical journal of the International Institute of Building Enclosure Consultants (IIBEC).

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.
