Kristen brings an invaluable depth of knowledge to the RDH Toronto team with her experience on large multi-disciplinary projects. Her expertise includes consulting on energy-efficient system design strategies for net zero energy, net zero carbon, and other high-performance buildings. Typically, she is involved very early in the design stage to support the development of sustainability goals, simulating the whole-building energy use throughout the design process as well as developing building monitoring strategies to support post-construction performance verification. Kristen is familiar with both new construction and existing buildings across a wide range of industries, including healthcare, institutional, residential, and commercial. Kristen’s work with whole-building energy analysis includes assessments of existing buildings to identify areas where energy consumption and carbon emissions can be reduced to achieve deep energy retrofits, which includes capital and life cycle cost analyses to develop zero over time solutions.
