Work History

Work History
Aug 2011 - Present

Project manager

Equitable Green Group

Presently developing procedures for Passive House construction, a highly efficient home designed to obtain substantial energy savings.  Passiv Haus was developed in Germany for cold climates but works equally well in hot zones.  Goal:  Produce a product which is comparable in price point to conventional home construction through efficient use of materials and labor.  This method does require a high level of quality control in air infiltration mitigation as well as balancing pressures within the home.

If one were to consider living off the grid, a Passive House would be the best way to minimize the power necessary to maximize an economic benefit.
