Building Energy Engineering is designing the building perimeter to reduce or minimize the amount of energy required to heat and cool the building, while making it more comfortable.
At ROV Consulting, we have an in-house Energy Adviser, a third-party consultant who has been registered by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan). Our Energy Adviser can provide both energy modeling and airtightness testing – the two services needed to demonstrate compliance under the BC Energy Step Code for both Part 9 and Part 3 buildings.
Our Building Energy Engineering services range from basic services, such as StepCode Compliance and EngerGuide Labeling program to best-in-class services, such as achieving the upper steps of energy step code, or superior energy-saving design properties inherent with Passive House, R2000, Energy Star™ and Net Zero House.
Performance-based building energy code compliance includes:
Typical features of our superior energy-efficient building services include:
ROV calculates the ROI of higher upfront costs associated with better energy performance against savings realized from significantly lower utility bills, smaller mechanical systems and footprint requirements, and extended building life.
We test completed building to measure energy transfer and air leakage parameters. From these measurements, ROV’s in-house Certified Energy Advisor can certify the building’s energy performance standard.
