About Us

ThermalWise is Atlantic Canada’s building performance consulting company. Our clients include: building owners, developers, designers, contractors, property managers and communities. We work with our clients to create energy-efficient, durable, and healthy built environments.

Our Approach

ThermalWise is a for-purpose business.


The goal of our business is to support and encourage our clients to transform the built environment in Atlantic Canada to be more:


sustainable, durable, and energy-efficient.


We do this by working with clients through all the stages of a building's design, construction and/or retrofit. Through this process we strive to make high-performance building an easier choice.

We also feel it's important to support and promote the work of our clients and to contribute to developing the high-performance building sector in Atlantic Canada. We do this by maintaining Atlantic Canada's Green Building Portal and by mentoring/advising students at Atlantic Canadian colleges and universities.

ThermalWise works with clients to help them implement and benefit from more sustainable building practices:
