    EPAct Engineer at EDSS

    Waterford, MI

I am a recent graduate from LTU seeking to increase my knowledge and experience in an architecture firm. I have an interest in sustainable architecture and hope to design buildings that are stylish and comfortable in addition to being energy efficient. I am well-versed in several different computer design programs. Currently, I am working toward getting my license to practice architecture.

Work History

  • EPAct Engineer

    • EDSS
    • Feb 2013 - Present (4 years 8 months)

    As an EPAct Engineer I ran studies on the energy efficiency of buildings to determine whether or not they would qualify for a tax deduction under the EPA Act of 2001. This included in-depth analysis based on interior lighting, HVAC and building envelope compared to ASHRAE standards. Doing so involved modeling the building on the computer and running simulations to determine energy consumption.

    As a Marketing and Support Intern for AIA Detroit, I attended events related to the architectural profession and advocated for the group. I talked to people about the role of AIA in the industry and encouraged people to join. I also volunteered at events hosted by AIA Detroit, setting up displays and organizing the event beforehand. I also supported the group's marketing campaign by increasing their online presence.
