Building Energy Engineering is designing the building perimeter to reduce or minimalize the amount of energy required to heat and cool the building, while making it more comfortable.
ROV uses sophisticated computer energy modelling techniques to precisely replicate any building’s thermal envelope and calculate expected energy performance.
Our Building Energy Engineering services range from basic services, such as fine-tuning building designs to meet minimum energy performance mandated by code – to best-in-class services, such as 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.
