Holiday Party!

Today is our holiday party!

Boy, we work hard and party hard. Its a good way to live life.

Can’t tell you where it is though because its a secret. However, we will post pictures tomorrow.

In the mean time, check out this article. Fred and I are going to do a walk through of the building today! So historical! It will be such a great project.

November and December Updates

We wanted to share some of the work we have been doing with you. We have been very busy traveling around across the Northeast crawling through buildings and looking at job sites. Several of us have traveled to Saratoga, Batavia, Philadelphia, Albany, New Hampshire… all while having lots of work to do here in Buffalo!!! We decided to write a post showing you some buildings, travel pics and whats going on. The end of the year can get crazy because we are trying to finish up last minute projects.

Buffalo

Buffalo rocks. We are working on so many projects here including the White Livery on Jersey Street, a couple cool low rise projects in Cheektowaga, a large retrofit in Niagara Falls that has seen drastic air leakage reductions and so many more. This picture is the PUSH net zero house in Buffalo’s West Side that we did the HERS Rating for.

Saratoga Springs

Fred, Michael and Bernice went to Saratoga Springs last week to look at a ton of properties. Here is a photo Bernice took with her instagram phone app of a second empire styled building that we looked at. Making buildings like this energy efficient is tough!

Philly

Mark and Fred went to Philly to look at cool new construction infill projects we are working on. The plans show 16 foot wide lots! Such a cool infill project.

New Hampshire

There is so much work happening in New Hampshire. Fred and Michael up there this week to meet with potential contractors and do a multifamily blower door. They did NOT see a moose. Everytime we travel past this Beech Nut Factory on the I-90, Bernice takes a photo. She loves stuff like this so we wanted to include it in the post.

 

That’s all for now!!

We will try to post some neat stuff on here more often. Enjoy the rest of your week!
