Boston – The Weidt Group announced its expansion into the Boston Metro area, that marks its first office on the East Coast.
The Weidt Group works to address energy efficiency with greater speed and accuracy through its software and services to the state’s public and private sector organizations.
The firm will immediately bring its energy services to two major project wins secured for the state of Massachusetts. Weidt will provide energy analysis on an existing terminal for the Massachusetts Port Authority, and has partnered with the Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships and Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources to develop the “Building Asset Rating” (BAR) pilot project.
This undertaking seeks to develop and test new ways of assessing the energy performance of buildings using a standardized energy rating metric that more cost-effectively assists building owners in making informed energy-efficiency decisions.
Asset ratings gauge a building’s energy consumption through as-built characteristics, including insulation, windows, and mechanical and electrical systems, among others.
Chris Baker, AIA, PE, BEMP, BEAP, LEED AP BD+C, business development leader of Energy Design Assistance for commercial new construction, will oversee the firm’s Boston operations as well as energy-efficient design efforts for the Massachusetts market.
