By focusing on energy efficiency, renewable technologies, and a holistic approach to building performance, Revolve Engineering is forging a new direction in green building design.
Don't leave it up to chance. Geothermal and Solar systems must be engineered using energy models, sophisticated sizing tools and experience -- not rules of thumb.
We use industry leading software and extensive experience to ensure the accuracy and thoroughness of each building model. Whether for LEED, NECB 2011 Code Compliance or Net Zero design, Energy Models are the best way to guide a project to success.
Net Zero design requires an intregrated design approach that considers all aspects of the building including envelope, lighting, HVAC systems etc... Knowing how these components interact is key to a succesful green building design.
Revolve believes all buildings should be designed with sustainability as a priority and we use that belief as a guiding principle in everything we do.
Every building and client is different, and so we strive to find a balance between the application of current sustainable technologies and the client's fiscal and operational constraints. We pride ourselves on our ability to build relationships with our clients in an effort to realize a common vision. We are convinced that with proper analysis and ingenuity, sustainable technologies can be successfully integrated into any building design while providing a solid financial return.

Just in time for Earth Day, we again make the case for Net Zero and try to show why every day it is getting riskier to not do it.
In this blog post we examine the impacts of Alberta's new energy code and how we can best achieve compliance while maintaining flexibility and cost-effectiveness in our design.
Check out the new article and video by Green Energy Futures on the sweetspot for geothermal, featuring... us! Enjoy.
In our latest blog post we make the case against using fossil fuels (namely natural gas) in buildings and suggest a strategy for putting our buildings on a path to Net Zero Energy.
Our first blog post explores the role of Geothermal (or Ground Source) heat pumps in achieving Net Zero Energy at the Mosaic Centre. Could we have achieved Net Zero without using a geothermal system? Are there broader conclusions we can apply to all Net Zero buildings? This blog post explores these questions.
