As a mid-sized firm, we are large enough to support our team members professionally and personally, and small enough to keep our focus on project successes and client satisfaction.

Calculation of energy impacts of using various mitigation reduction strategies, including enhanced building envelopes, electric HVAC systems, and on-site renewable energy potential; and
Assisting clients in documenting LEED status and recommending strategies to obtain sufficient LEED points for various levels of certification.
Depending on fit, the candidate could lead Epsilon into new sustainability practice areas, including Energy Modeling and/or LEED Certification Project Management (including under LEED for Homes).
The successful candidate will be able to:
Interact with mechanical engineers, energy modelers, and architects;
Understand the workings of building energy modeling using eQuest or similar software;
Review building energy modeling results and technical memos by others for consistency with project plans, LEED requirements, building energy code requirements, and regulatory scope requirements;

Interact with clients in the real estate, energy, and industrial sectors;
Write clear and persuasive reports that address regulatory or scope requirements and are tailored to the audience (client, regulator, or public); and

The ideal candidate will have 1) 5-10 years of experience in an engineering, planning, sustainability or environmental consulting environment, 2) a bachelor’s degree in engineering, urban planning, architecture, or similar field, 3) LEED AP accreditation, 4) an interest in energy-efficient building design, 5) superior written and oral communication skills, and 6) proven ability to work as part of a multidisciplinary project team.
Epsilon offers the opportunity to participate in a range of challenging, high-profile projects, helping our clients make innovative and forward-thinking improvements to the built environment.
