Energy Efficiency Consultant and Certified Passive House Designer
After 15 years as a Professional Civil Engineer managing major construction projects valued at up to $100M, I left my job in order to design and manage/build my family's personal residence. The home meets the Passive House standard and includes a secondary rental suite. By managing the full life cycle of the project and doing much of the physical construction work myself, I learned an enormous amount about the realities of passive homes and was able to experience it from the perspective of an owner/investor, designer, builder and user.
Now living in the home with my family, I am building a consulting business focused on my passions of passive homes and energy efficiency. I volunteer my time as the Vice Chair on the Passive House Alberta Board of Directors.
I hold a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of Calgary and I am a Certified Passive House Designer. My past work included being the project manager for office towers and mixed-use buildings, some certified to the LEED Gold and Platinum levels. This included responsibility for team management as well as design development, estimating, budgeting, procurement, cost control and financial oversight.
