  • Critieria pollutant and greenhouse gas emissions analysis of energy projects
  • Training and consultation on combined heat and power tool suite (CHAPSAT, GilMore, RELCOST, & GHG Calculator) and on the Engineer in a Pocket software. We offer both on-site training and web training.

Services for Architects, Building Owners, Design Teams, and HVAC Contractors

My range of experience lends perspective in meeting the needs of Architects, Building Owners, Design Teams, and HVAC contractors. I have worked as a commercial sector plan and spec engineer, as a construction project manager and later as a trade supervisor with a crew of 40 people from all the trades maintaining and operating buildings. I have inspected job site conditions, bid the jobs, designed the systems, obtained permits and supported my construction team to close out. I have trained Building Operators on how to use their EMS system to maintain and operate their buildings efficiently and proactively.
