Entrepreneur, green building enthusiast, and a believer that we can build and maintain better. I spent the better part of the last decade promoting the use of Insulated Concrete Forms for use in building envelope construction. To me it’s a no-brainer as it provides a wall system that performs like an R-50 rated traditionally built wall. Average heating and cooling bills drop 30-70% when using this type of wall system. I discounted the greed of builders who’s primary motivation is to squeeze as much profit out of constructing a building, rather than to build something environmentally friendly.
From ICF’s, I moved into building systems, as in, working in multi unit residential buildings (apartments and condominiums), providing energy audits, building condition assessments, and performing retrofits of boilers, lighting and other mechanical systems. We took advantage of the rebates provided by government and utility company’s to educate our clients, to help them make changes that reduced their energy consumption while at the same time helping them to introduce habits that helped their pocketbook as well as the environment.
My previous roles were as an employee of various companies. Now, I promote all that I believe in through my own services, always trying to lead my clients down the path of sustainability.
