BANCROFT — While their solar division is busier than ever, Evergreen Energy Solutions has launched their green and energy efficient building services with the hiring of Project Manager
Martin Cox. Cox eagerly joins the Bancroft team after working for the past couple of years for the Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC) Smart Buildings and Energy Management Unit where he was a project manager for their $55 million Building Retrofit Program.
Cox’s professional experience in low-energy, high-efficiency heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems complements Evergreen Energy’s new green building services now available to the Bancroft region. Cox joins the Evergreen Energy team of engineers bringing the first LEED certification to the region.
LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is an internationally recognized green building certification system administered by the Canadian Green Building Council (CaGBC). This standard was developed by the building and construction industry to offer a framework for achieving both practical and measurable green building design, construction methods and environmentally-conscious maintenance options.
The LEED standard applies to all building types; commercial and residential from initial design through to retrofit options, which is why this qualification is valued so highly by Evergreen Energy.
About the company expansion and the arrival of Cox, Evergreen Energy President Tyler Peters says, “With rising energy prices, alternatives to conventional heating and cooling systems for residential and commercial applications are in high demand. Our expansion in this field, lead by Martin, will give our region a sustainable option for green energy solutions.”
Attention to the highest standard of green building is the foundation of Evergreen Energy’s line of products and services in high-efficiency HVAC, green building, and solar energy solutions. To support their valued clients, Evergreen Energy offers financing for green building projects, including HVAC, green retrofit, and solar systems.
