Welcome to the new GOrate website.
Over the last 10 years my business focus has shifted from building design & documentation to the implementation of energy efficiency into the built form. For this reason I decided that it was time to generate a separate website dedicated to this focus.
Even before I was involved in building design I was employed in the field of ‘building services’. In this capacity, (from the early 90’s) I learnt how to assess buildings, and design heating and cooling systems using first principles , and computer simulation software. When energy efficiency became a focus of residential buildings I felt that I was well suited to apply my knowledge to this endeavour. Subsequently my business has evolved to specialise in this area.
I am continually researching, learning and discussing matters of energy efficiency and building science so I feel that a website tailored to this focus is a good idea.
This GOrate website is dedicated to educating designers, trades and consumers in the fundamentals of building science. I look forward to sharing information, encouraging discussion of these topics, and continuing the learning process.
My website based GOrate blog will also be shared on Facebook and LinkedIn.
