FAQ's, Architect FAQ's PERFORMANCE CONSULTING—GUIDED BY BUILDING SCIENCE April 6, 2023 Posted by Amber Doll 06 Apr Positive Energy is a unique firm. We actually might be crazy for doing the kind of work we do in the face of relatively low historical demand for it, but hey, that’s show business baby! Over the last 15 years, we’ve built our reputation and business on offering high-performance mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineering services to the residential architecture market with a focus on health, comfort, and decarbonizing. Given how rare it is to see MEP expertise brought into residential projects, we naturally drifted toward the high end of the market. And, as fun as it is to work on homes with endless budgets, our passion to make a broad societal impact left us wanting to find more ways to make our expertise available. So, we spent some time chewing on this quandary, and we came up with an eerily familiar idea: let’s create a new constellation of services that the residential design market has not really seen much of before and maybe doesn’t even want, and see how it goes. It worked with MEP engineering, so why not try it again?
