Hi. My name is Adrian and I started Delta T to help homeowners, architects, and contractors in achieving their green energy design goals. At Delta T we understand that navigating the California building codes can be difficult. Our clients find peace of mind knowing that our design team is here to guide the way. We use the newest integrative technologies to assist in the design of homes which are both green and affordable.
My desire to work in the green building industry originally stemmed from my love of the outdoors. I spent four years working for a landscape architecture/design firm in the beautiful mountains surrounding Steamboat Springs Colorado. I spent my free time fly-fishing crystal clear waters and tearing up chest-deep powder in the rugged backcountry on my snowboard. My love of the pristine wilderness and a desire to maintain it for future generations was the catalyst for my next move. I decided that I wanted to help people implement green design practices in the residential building space and what better place to study green building design than the state with the most advanced green building requirements?
So my wife and I moved to California where I would study at Sonoma State University. There I earned a degree in Energy Management and Design. I also learned the benefits of integrated energy design which allows the building of comfortable modern homes and does so in a way that is minimally invasive to the natural beauty of the earth all while keeping the expenses to a minimum . It is my hope that through these practices we can create homes which work symbiotically with both our surroundings and our wallets.
After graduating from Sonoma State I immediately took a position at the green building consulting firm at which I had interned during school. Luckily they were the best of the best in the industry. Throughout my first year at that company I studied like crazy and earned my California CEA license, HERS rater license, ACCA J, D, & S license, and CALGreen special inspector license. The experience that I gained from my time at the green building firm was invaluable and led me to eventually starting my own firm. I like to stay busy looking to broaden my horizons and gain knowledge. For that reason I'm currently continuing my education through BPI certifications and mechanical design courses.
So where is this adventure leading to? Once I complete my Master's degree the plan is to start a green design build firm where we will design and build passive/carbon neutral homes using recycled and natural materials. I'm in the process of researching and designing a solar powered aquaponics system for low input food cultivation which I would like to integrate into custom homes for fresh, low cost food and vegetables straight from the back yard. My wife Kendra and I are hoping that in the future we will be fortunate enough to design and build Zero Net Energy green communities where neighbors can live together on shared-space properties in a supportive, conscientious, and environmentally friendly way.
