Who Are We?

Thurston Engineering Services provides commissioning, energy and greenhouse gas management, and energy simulation services for commercial buildings primarily in Western Canada, but beyond this region as well.

No matter what expertise we provide, we are driven to provide the best consulting service possible to our clients in ensuring that your building systems work before you go to work.

Call us if you need assistance with:

  • Commissioning

    As independent commissioning agents, we manage the commissioning process and make hands-on system and equipment checks so that our clients' buildings operate to their optimal, designed potential on day one. Our services meet requirements of LEED and Green Globes programs, but can be customized to meet your project needs to ensure the most beneficial outcome.

  • Energy Management

    As energy managers, we go into existing buildings, pinpoint the energy hogs, and see our client through the retrofit improvement process so that their energy bills become manageable...and get them some financial help from federal and provincial programs in the meantime. We have obtained 100% of the ecoENERGY grants and provincial boiler replacement grants that we have sought for clients, and can tailor our analysis and reports to meet requirements of BOMA, internal maintenance management and other programs.

  • Energy Simulation

    As energy simulation professionals, we take a schematic or developed design and analyze it for its energy use so that our clients can make informed decisions on the highest return design alternative and be given verification that their development is designed to meet their energy savings target. We create models in accordance with LEED, based on MNECB or ASHRAE energy standards.

  • Greenhouse Gas Management

    As consultants in greenhouse gas management, we inventory your operation for its greenhouse gas footprint and, combined with our energy management expertise, provide recommendations for viable reductions. We have created inventories in accordance with The Greenhouse Gas Protocol, The Climate Registry, and ISO-14064, but can easily adjust our methods to meet the latest protocol.
