Building Energy


Expanding code requirements for improved building efficiency are coming soon. Are you ready?

 

ROV Consulting Inc. has been planning ahead to assist builders and their customers meet key elements of these requirements head-on.

The new building services range from basic services, i.e. fine-tune building designs to meet minimum energy performance mandated by code, or offer superior energy-saving design properties inherent with Passive House, R2000, Energy Star, and Net Zero House.

Performance-based building energy code compliance includes:

  • Design of thermal envelope for external walls, roof, basement and exposed floors.
  • Determine the most efficient use and placement of envelope materials using energy modeling.
  • Optimizing the physical properties of windows and shadings.
