“BETOP Inc.“ is a Canadian based building material research laboratory powered by the Science Discovery Zone at Ryerson University. In “BETOP Inc.“ we perform testing in addition to research and development on innovative building materials for the building envelope with focus on enhancing the energy efficiency and durability of buildings.
The focus at “BETOP Inc.” is to reimagine the role of materials in the building envelope as factors of change in building performance, indoor environmental quality and energy efficiency. To achieve this main goal, BETOP provides testing services in addition to research and development on conventional and innovative building materials.
Our prospect at BETOP is to facilitate a platform to represent innovative alternative building materials that can change the trajectory of building envelope design and lead to more energy efficient and sustainable construction. Our objective is to build collaborations between academic and industry partners through our testing and development services. We provide testing services at affordable costs and different scales to create a material profile. Ultimately our long term goal is to evaluate the potential for market integration of the developed materials from our research.
