Shane Wolffe is a local engineer who has been working with buildings to improve their comfort and performance while reducing their energy consumption.
As a professional working in a relatively new area of one of the fastest growing industries in the world, Shane realized that it is difficult to engage people who don't understand new technologies and services. This is the inspiration for FutureProofMyBuilding.com, a service which intends to educate and connect the public to the professionals, products and resources they need to live more sustainably. This service is in its infancy and your feedback and participation can help move it forward.
About Shane's book:
The world is changing fast, much faster than people can understand. Yet as our city grows at record speed, it seems that for the most part we continue to do things the way we've always done them. In a world where climate change is becoming a pressing issue, fossil fuel prices are increasing and our cities continue to grow, why do we not take more corrective action at such a crucial time?
It IS possible to cost effectively build a more comfortable, safe, valuable, low energy and environmentally friendly home even here in Saskatoon. Yet by and large, the energy usage and sustainability of our homes and buildings is not accounted for in this area of the world. As citizens of one of the coldest cities in the world, shouldn't we have a much higher energy standard than those living in the milder climates of more progressive societies such as Austria, Germany and Sweden? How do we make this change? How do citizens become engaged to take action? How do we convince builders to raise their standards? How do we Future Proof™ our society?
