About Us

Collaboration. Innovation. Decarbonization.

We are a team of mechanical engineers, system thinkers, and energy thought leaders with 50 years of combined industry experience translating complex problems into elegant and practical solutions. 


Our mission is the equitable decarbonization of the building sector. We know that we can't solve the problems of yesterday using the kind of thinking used to create them, and we can’t do it in silos. 

We believe that urgent attention is required to decarbonize the already built environment. We are committed and passionate about applying our expertise to solve this challenge. We believe our collective experience and diversity will drive innovation and equitable solutions to meeting our climate goals.

Big picture matters, Details matter. Drawing connections between these two is where the magic happens. And this is where we thrive as a team. We are intentional, focused, and goal oriented.

We bring a fresh perspective to traditional energy and mechanical engineering that is backed by the extensive and collective experience of our talented team. Whether we’re the engineer of record or part of a larger design team, our goal is always the same – that the system has to perform.
