Residential Building Services

Building Science Consulting

  • Get a calculated and science-based approach to achieve high-performance project goals.

  • Get designs with applied building science principles that take into account occupant comfort, material science, indoor air quality, and energy conservation.

Blower Door Airtightness Testing and Consulting  

  • Get an airtightness test to measure the air leakage rate through the building envelope resulting from deficiencies in the air barrier system. 

  • Identify issues that could lead to a deficient air barrier system to reduce the amount of time performing repairs to make the system work.

Thermal Infrared Inspection

  • Get a building diagnosis to identify deficient insulation, locate sources of air leakage, and determine the source of water leakage entry points.


EnerGuide Rating Services

  • Licensed through Natural Resources Canada, use our EnerGuide Rating Services to measure your home’s energy performance.

Deficiency Inspections​

  • Get insight on the four critical barriers of a project, such as the weather, air, vapour, and thermal barriers.

  • Ensure site deficiencies are addressed while they can still be accessed, saving up to 80% on home warranty call-backs.

Thermal Bridging Analysis

  • Manage your thermal bridging to maintain effective R-values and reduce the risk of condensation occurring within or on the surface of construction assemblies.

Renewable Energy Consulting

  • Incorporate renewable energy systems to move towards a net-zero building by balancing building envelope, mechanical systems, and renewable energy.

  • Get advice on which on-site renewable energy systems are available and applicable to your project.

Heat Gain and Loss Calculations for Heating System Sizing

  • Get energy modeling to calculate the heat loss and gain of your building, determined by the effectiveness of the building envelope.

  • Determine which size and type of mechanical systems will be most effective for your project.

Hygrothermal Condensation Risk Analysis

  • Understand the thermodynamic profile of a construction assembly as a whole. 

  • Assess the risk of dew points and condensation in wall assemblies.

  • Get insight into issues such as mold growth and decay.

Site Training

  • Learn passive design principles, including an understanding of the location and size of glazing systems that capture radiant solar energy in winter months and provide shade in summer months, natural ventilation to assist with cooling, and airtight construction that create a more healthy and energy efficient home. 

  • Get help designing your upcoming passive project.

  • Get support in managing the certification process.

Effective R-Value Calculations for Building Assemblies

  • Get effective, calculated R-values for construction assemblies.

Passive Design Consulting

  • Achieve a high-performance project by understanding the difference between construction detail and constructability.
