EXPERIENCE MATTERS…

Chris Laumer-Giddens has been designing Mechanical Systems for single- and multi-family homes all over north america, including Canada and the Bahamas. He enjoys, and has become an expert in, both the creative and technical parts of the design and specification process. Mare than anything, though, he loves creating ideal solutions for home and building owners. His expertise of the art, science and craft of buildings gives him the ability to create well integrated systems that exceeds expectations. Check out the map below of all the places where he’s worked.

There’s more than just Manual J, Manual S, Manual T, Manual D and ASHRAE 62.2 for Chris, though these are critical guidelines to know and incorporate in to each design. He knows that every home and it’s occupants are unique. There’s no one formula to follow, and lots of details to pay attention to.

He’s ready to work with you, and create your comfort. Email him to find out more about this process and how it can benefit you and your home.
