“Building Envelope Consultants are professional consultants who specialize in the exterior of buildings. They focus on keeping the “weather out and energy in” of a building. A building’s envelope includes all the systems that keep air, water, heat, light, and noise in or out of a building.”

Tom Gernetzke, Principal Building Envelope Consultant and Owner of BEPG
