Merger Announcement: Red Door Energy

Red Door Energy Ltd has merged with RDH Building Science.

Vancouver, BC. November 21, 2016 — At RDH we are always planning for the future. Nowhere is this truer than in our work with high-performance buildings. As industry standards have grown and evolved, so too has RDH, constantly working on the forefront of green building design and construction.

We are excited to announce, as part of our evolution, that Red Door Energy Design Ltd., a long-time industry partner with RDH, has merged its Passive House consulting and certification operations with RDH Building Science.

Red Door founder, Monte Paulsen has joined the RDH team as a Passive House Specialist. Monte is a Passivhaus Institute-accredited certifier, trainer, and consultant. He was a founding board member of, and regular instructor for, the non-profit known as Passive House Canada. As one of Canada’s most experienced Passive House professionals, he will lead RDH’s Passive House business in British Columbia, and will facilitate development of Passive House capacity among RDH teams across Canada and the U.S.

With Monte transitioning into RDH, Domus Home Energy Inc will assume Red Door’s remaining operations, including the provision of EnerGuide for New Houses ratings as well as related Energy Advisor services for one- and two-family developments in the City of Vancouver.

Domus is a new company formed by Red Door veteran, Barbara Meihuizen, who has managed these operations for Red Door since 2015. Barbara will be joined by Red Door business manager, Corinne Mounce. We look forward to working with them in future collaborative projects.

While interest in Passive House has piqued across North America, Vancouver in particular has seen a rapid rate of growth in large (multi-unit or multi-purpose) Passive House buildings, largely inspired by the City of Vancouver’s Zero Emissions Buildings plan.

As key consultants on nearly all of Vancouver’s leading large-scale Passive House projects, RDH has established itself as a leader in this domain. With a strong foundation of innovative project work, we will continue to learn and grow. With this merger, RDH is excited to continue our work in Passive House, bringing expanded expertise to our comprehensive Passive House consulting services.
