Strategy A:

Client to Robert, “our blue prints are done – can you helps us achieve an energy efficient indoor climate?”

Strategy B:

Robert to client, “here’s how to achieve an energy efficient indoor climate now go have your blue prints done...then come back to us for the HVAC design and schematics.”

One of these methods is proactive and the other reactive...we can help you in both cases but you know intuitively which one leads to the best results.

We're very good at rescuing buildings after they have been designed, but we're at our best when we're doing preventative engineering.

Our motto: Begin with the End in Mind

I love sharing my knowledge and have over 30 years of professional public speaking experience in front of audiences of all types all over North America. Read some of our fan mail.

Level 1 - Telephone Support and Design Counselling

We offer telephone support for a flat hourly consultation fee for those who want one-on-one help, advice or our opinion; or want to discuss principles and concepts for your new building; or looking for ways to resolve business or technical problems with systems or equipment.

For evaluations, calculations, illustrations and stamped drawings see below.

Level 2 - Professional Technical or Business Services

Effective January 1st 2019, I have retired our project engineering design services from Indoor Climate Consultants Inc. as I wind down to spend more time with my fishing rod, skis and guitar. The following services will remain available for 2019/2020: all private requests for product reviews, design counselling, opinions, advice, collaborative work, recommendations etc.; includes any task involving research, technical writing and illustrations. Also includes seminars, lecturers and workshops. If you send us emails regarding any of the above without indicating your interest to retain us for paid services we will direct you to the free service below.

See this page for budgeting HVAC design fees.

Qualifications: I started in the construction business in 1979 and graduated in 1983 from the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (Building Construction Engineering Technology), and the Alberta School of Drafting (AutoCAD) and the University of Calgary's Business Owner Transition program. I am both a Registered Engineering Technologist in building construction through the Association of Science and Engineering Technology Professionals of Alberta (ASET # 8167) and a Professional Licensee in mechanical engineering through the Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists and Geophysicists of Alberta (APEGA, # 105894).

APEGA Scope of Practice: “Within the discipline of mechanical engineering: Design, specify and supervise the fabrication of heating, ventilation, air conditioning and domestic plumbing systems for building classifications A through E and F3, nonhazardous, non-explosion proof, restricted to four stories or less.”

Before my academic and professional practices I worked several years in the building construction trades including framing, cribbing, interior finishes, geotechnical, commercial foundations and hardscapes.

In addition, I have started, bought, grown and sold successful small businesses involved in the design, fabrication and distribution of HVAC related equipment and systems; as such I have worked with many manufacturers throughout North America and Europe (see below for list of past and present clients).

Let my wide range of engineering, business and trade experience work for you.

If you wish to use our fee based services, please email us first with your inquiry indicating you wish to retain us for a fee and follow up with a phone call to 403.560.5769. We will reply with options for a time and date for our initial meeting.
