Coffee with Bernie is a fun, informal roundtable or virtual gallery of colleagues (literally) open for discussion on any industry-related topic. We are not limited to talking about one thing. If you have something to share, please join us. Bring your most unique coffee cup or drinking glass.

Bernie Kern is the principal owner of award-winning BBKern DESIGNS. Bernie Kern has developed code-approved working drawings for new custom and model residential homes, multi-family buildings, additions, remodels, and light commercial projects for nearly 30 years.

Bernie began the Coffee with Bernie program in February 2020 primarily as a means for AIBD members to interact with its leadership and for leadership to provide transparency. However, being launched one month before a global pandemic lockdown, the show quickly evolved into a medium where residential building designers, builders, architects, and construction product and service providers could gather virtually.
