As a sustainability consultant, Wahib evaluates the performance of systems for new developments or existing building retrofits. His goal is to quantify and qualify systems, to determine which are effective design solutions for improving energy performance and reducing greenhouse gas emissions while considering environmental, economic, and social impacts. His expertise is in energy modeling, energy audits, carbon neutral studies, renewable systems, life cycle cost analyses, and design standards and guidelines such as NECB, ASHRAE 90.1, and LEED.
One of Wahib’s notable projects was leading carbon-neutral studies for three buildings located in his home province of Nova Scotia. The studies examined several efficiency-measure options, one of which featured the implementation of a district energy system, taking advantage of a central system to provide heating and cooling to the three neighboring buildings.
