Tim saw not only how the isolation of each sector in the construction process leads to inadequacies in long-term building performance but also impacts purchases down the line. This includes things like overbuilt homes that, unbeknownst to their owners, worsen the efficiency equation, as well as the need to purchase larger, more expensive HVAC and hot water equipment to compensate for a leaky thermal envelope and poorly located, improperly designed equipment. Wanting to go beyond simply completing a structure that looks pretty, his passionately environmentally conscious mind envisioned a more cohesive, efficient homebuilding process with the overall end performance of the structure in mind.
Tim’s solution was to amass a trusted network of service providers willing to work toward the ultimate goal of a cohesive, energy efficient, high-performance building. As BESC was born, Tim made strategic partnerships with trusted providers who would complement his background including skilled framers, HVAC experts, insulation specialists, and even insurance professionals. With their help BESC organizes timely but thorough builds, meeting the requested design standards and expected efficiency requirements of home and business owners.
Helping him meet the needs of today’s home and business owners, Tim has a wide range of expertise in high-performance building design, including:
- Licensed Civil Engineer and Building Contractor
