Pro-Demnity Insurance Company has signed on as a Silver Sponsor of the 16th Canadian Conference of Building Science and Technology, presented by the Ontario Building Envelope Council (OBEC). The Conference is set to take place October 27 and 28, 2022 at the Paramount Event Space in Vaughan.
“We are delighted to be a Silver Sponsor of this year’s conference,” shares Bruce Palmer, President and CEO of Pro-Demnity. “This is a purposeful investment in supporting the work of building envelope specialists, who render valued services to architects and architectural firms.”
When offering risk mitigation guidance to practices, Pro-Demnity’s on-staff architects and risk experts often suggest there is value to their firm in seeking the services of a qualified building envelope specialist as one of several key sub-consultants.
As the architects’ professional liability insurer, Pro-Demnity focuses on supporting the architectural profession to enable the improvement of society and human interaction through better design by encouraging the wise, effective, and efficient management of risk.
In this way, Pro-Demnity shares the Ontario Building Envelope Council’s interest in “bridging the gaps amongst the architectural, engineers, research, manufacturers and construction communities” as well as working collaboratively with our communities of practice to “address the challenges facing performance and sustainability.”
“The Ontario Building Envelope Council is pleased to partner with Pro-Demnity and are happy to have them on board as a silver sponsor for the Canadian Conference for Building Science and Technology in 2022,” says Mila Aleksic, OBEC President. “Since 1987, OBEC has been supporting architectural, engineering, research, manufacturers, and construction communities. Our non-profit organization addresses today’s challenges facing building performance and sustainability. One of OBEC’s keys to success is our dedication to building science education at all levels. We are excited to work with Pro-Demnity to promote our shared goals of creating better-performing buildings and managing design risk through following sound building science principles.”
Pro-Demnity encourages architecture practices and principals to support the architects, project leaders, and associates in their firms, to augment their knowledge of building envelope sciences and technology as a risk mitigation strategy for the firm, by attending the Conference, or becoming more familiar with the value that Building Envelope Specialists can add to design practices and quality assurance.
