Building the Future
Hello my name is Shane Wolffe I want to show you how you can save money, provide a healthier home for your family and contribute to building a better world by understanding the basics of green building. I can help you through several options such as attending an energy education workshop, engaging me as a commercial construction consultant, or by joining my mailing list and reading my book, “How to Future Proof Your Home: A Guide to Building with Energy Intelligence in Cold Climates.”
The Future Proof Philosophy
Shane developed his knowledge and much of his expertise in Saskatchewan, Canada; a place with one of the world’s harshest climates. The temperatures in Saskatchewan range from -40°C (-40°F) to 35°C (95°F), making the province one of the most energy dependent in the world. Similarly, temperatures in the Yukon get even colder, into the -50°C’s at times and can occasionally reach 30°C’s in the summer.
You might be surprised to learn that we can cost-effectively build “green” even in such a harsh climate. If it can be done in such a climate of extremes, it can be done anywhere!
My expertise was mainly developed in the commercial construction industry, I have put great effort to make this knowledge simple and available to the average person.
My objective is to help shift our energy paradigm away from fossil fuels to help build a more sustainable, equitable and healthy society.
I’m a professional engineer who is accredited in LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), a Certified Energy Auditor and Thermographer. I have been trained by the Canadian Passive House Institute and work in the fields of commissioning and recommissioning to ensure the quality of Green Buildings and industrial projects
Energy use and climate
Future Proofing by Design
North America buildings consume the most energy per sector in the economy. If you are concerned about climate change, this is a real problem for the future. We can build homes and other buildings to produce as much, if not more energy, than they consume.
Interior Spaces & Experiences
FutureProof design does more than just save energy, it creates luxurious comfort and healthy interior spaces. Heat exchanger’s exhaust the old stale air and bring in fresh air on a continual basis. This ensures that airborne particulates are evacuated out of the building space protecting the health of our interior spaces.
