RCI, Inc. becomes the International Institute of Building Enclosure Consultants (IIBEC) - On April 1, 2019, RCI, Inc., a nonprofit association originally incorporated in 1983 as the Roof Consultants Institute (RCI), officially became the International Institute of Building Enclosure Consultants (IIBEC). The change, approved by its membership after extensive study, brand assessment, and industrywide feedback, will align the association’s name and brand with its purpose and strategy heading into the future. 

IIBEC has grown from a small core of dedicated roof consultants to represent some 3600 members, comprised of building enclosure consultants and other industry stakeholders specializing in roofing, waterproofing, and exterior wall specification and design. This membership growth and evolution reflect the understanding that roofing issues often influence the entire building enclosure. It was discovered that in increasing frequency, IIBEC members are called upon to address building-wide concerns from below-grade to rooftop.  

IIBEC's Registered Roof Consultant (RRC), Registered Waterproofing Consultant (RWC), Registered Exterior Wall Consultant (REWC), Registered Building Envelope Consultant (RBEC), Registered Roof Observer (RRO), and Registered Exterior Wall Observer (REWO) programs distinguish professionals with the proven standards of education, experience and ethics.

Chapter President's Message

As the IIBEC Mid-Atlantic Chapter we are the local association of professional consultants, architects, and engineers who specialize in roofing, waterproofing, and exterior building enclosure systems. Our membership also includes material manufacturers and vendors; facility and property management, engineering, and maintenance staff; and installing contractors. Our focus is on all building enclosure components and the entire system integrity and performance from design to construction and throughout the entire useful life of a building. Our professional membership provides unbiased inspection, repair planning, design, quality observance, legal testimony and general waterproofing/building enclosure/facade and roof management services. There are no more meaningful designations than RRC (Registered Roof Consultant), RWC (Registered Waterproofing Consultant), and Registered Exterior Wall Consultant (REWC) for the design of roof and building enclosure waterproofing systems and components.
