Project Counselling

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.

However, every successful project I worked on started with a 1 to 2 hour project counselling session and that service is still available for a fee.

Based on my 40+ years of experience in designing buildings and indoor environments through an informative process we will discuss these subjects:

1. Project Objectives
a. Retirement Property
b. Transitional Property
c. Investment Property

2. Human Factor Design & Indoor Environmental Quality (with emphasis on ageing and consideration for homes being a space for health, healing and end of life care)
a. Sound Quality
b. Thermal Comfort Quality
c. Indoor Air Quality
d. Lighting Quality
e. Odour Quality
f. Vibration Quality

3. Architectural Design
a. Passive vs active solutions
b. Impact on all sensory systems
c. Impact on mechanical and electrical systems complexity
d. Impact on energy conservation
e. Impact on energy efficiency
f. Impact on resiliency
g. Impact on sustainability
h. Framing styles and impact on mechanical, plumbing and electrical systems
i. Landscaping (hardscapes and softscapes) considerations for air quality, thermal comfort and sound

4. Enclosure Design
a. Window selection for light, ventilation and thermal comfort
b. Effect of solar radiation on artifacts, collectibles, paintings, musical instruments
c. Framing styles & insulation types to reduce thermal bridging and sound transmission
d. Air tightness for conservation of energy and thermal comfort and air quality
e. Foundation and soil characteristic considerations for air quality, thermal comfort and energy conservation and efficiency

5. Interior Design
a. Effects on indoor air quality, sound, thermal comfort and energy efficiency
b. Hygiene and interior finishes
c. Outgassing and particle generation from finishes

6. Mechanical Design

a. Heating options (radiant and convective systems)
b. Cooling options (radiant and convective systems)
c. Conditioning air for air, sound and thermal quality (humidity, particles and gasses)
d. Conditioning surfaces for thermal, air and sound quality
e. Domestic water heating options
f. Vacuum system consideration
g. Exhaust air from pollution sources and intake air requirements
h. Kitchen ventilation for gas and induction ranges including make up air options
