Born and raised in Prince Albert, SK, Shane received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Regina, specializing in Electronic Systems Engineering. As a registered Professional Engineer (Saskatchewan), LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Accredited Professional in Building Design and Construction, Certified Energy Auditor and Certified Level One Thermographer, Shane uses his skills to advance the practice of commissioning in both buildings and industrial processes. In addition to the listed professional designations, Shane has taken multiple professional training courses including, “The Commissioning Process for New Construction”, “Passive House Design and Construction Training”, ASHRAE Fundamentals of HVAC, ASHRAE Fundamentals of Control Systems and many others as part of his Honeywell Boot Camp training.
Shane founded Future Proof Commissioning Solutions Inc./ Future Proof Software Solutions Ltd. with the objective of helping small businesses and product providers by promoting “Future Proof” activieties such as energy-efficient construction principles, commissioning, energy auditing, thermography, energy saving/renewable technologies and hopefully many others as his vision unfolds.
Shane’s career began as a Programmer Analyst for Saskatchewan Government Insurance. Driven by his passion for the environment, Shane found a job with Honeywell Building Solutions where he worked as an Automation Technician, performing preventative maintenance and service work in over 50 buildings spanning multiple facility types, including hospitals, schools, office buildings, care homes, post-secondary institutions, malls, recreation facilities, pools and even a science center with a live butterfly hatchery.
This led to a project management position at Integrated Designs Inc. where Shane learned how to assist owners and project teams to ensure project success through the implementation of the commissioning process. It was here that Shane project managed and performed the commissioning of several large construction projects, including the Dube Center for Mental Health, Humboldt Hospital, Credit Union Center (re-commissioning), and several LEED projects including Meadow Lake Provincial Court House, Red Deer Royal Canadian Mounted Police detachment the Moose Jaw Multiplex, among several others. This experience has also reached into the industrial realm with the commissioning of the Raw Water pumping station for the City of Saskatoon and the commissioning of the Buffalo Pound Water Pumping Station North project.
Shane Wolffe wishes to help solve the marketing problems that small businesses and product providers within the green building industry face by educating people about Future Proofing – the cost-effective method towards reducing energy usages so that customers can save money and live more sustainably.
