•  Development of climate and energy concepts in response to local climate, site, architectural, and programmatic requirements, including mechanical design concepts and key performance requirements for mechanical design concepts
•  Testing and validation of concepts, including comfort and energy analysis, via thermal simulation (TRNSYS)
•  Review of project design documentation, especially architectural and mechanical drawings and specifications, to ensure successful realization of the climate concepts
•  Engineering analysis and tool development via hand calculation, spreadsheet analysis, and contemporary scripting tools (such as Python, Javascript, or Grasshopper)
•  Internal coordination with other team members, synthesis, and communication of overall analysis results and design recommendations
•  Graphical representation of climate concepts and complex engineering analysis
•  Writing reports and correspondence

•  Ability to develop and articulate engineering problems beginning with fundamental physics and use both analytical and computational methods to analyze unique and complex building physics and building systems
•  Passion and creative energy required to collaborate with world-class architectural design teams
•  2-3 years of experience in commercial HVAC system design
•  Experience with conventional whole-building energy simulation and ASHRAE 90.1 baseline modeling
•  Education/professional experience with current and advanced architectural technologies (e.g. building envelope)
•  Experience with physical testing of engineering systems: system construction, instrumentation and measurement, etc.
•  Experience collaborating and communicating in the early stages of an architectural design process with both technical and non-technical audiences
