  • Prepare building performance simulations to guide the design of new and existing buildings; including energy modelling, thermal comfort analysis, daylight simulation, CFD, and lifecycle analysis
  • Participate in the integrated design process and assist our clients and design teams to set ambitious goals for energy performance and low-carbon design
  • Develop the energy modeling skill set within our team of junior and intermediate modelers, peer review completed and in-progress analysis and manage quality and client satisfaction
  • Advise clients, design teams, and team members of high-performance building strategies that will contribute to their successful pursuit of goals such as certification under LEED, Living Building Challenge, Passive House, Zero Carbon or compliance under OBC and Toronto Green Standard
  • Work with our internal Design Technology team to improve our processes for BIM integration, geometry development, and parametric design
  • Carry out energy analysis for existing buildings including field surveys, energy audit reports, regression analysis, and bin data calculations
  • Maintain a high level of knowledge of industry developments and trends related to energy and building performance; provide thought leadership through chapter membership and conference presentations
  • Estimate time, effort, and resources required to complete new projects and take part in authoring proposals
  • Assist with the development of measurement and verification approaches and strategies
