Please join Lambda Alpha International’s Baltimore Chapter for our June Presentation on Wednesday, June 15th at noon: Planning for Net Zero.

Baltimore is one of many cities with stated carbon emissions reduction goals. Buildings in particular are a primary focus of these initiatives. We will discuss strategies for achieving zero net energy in new construction projects. In the context of New Ecology’s work in jurisdictions on the leading edge of this push for high performance buildings we will review long-term plans for compliance, with an eye toward minimizing costs. Boston, Massachusetts and Washington, DC are two cities which already require emissions reductions for poorly performing buildings. In advance of a similar mandate coming to Baltimore, we will review a “Zero Over Time” evaluation and planning exercise.

The presentation will feature:
Joshua Galloway – Senior Project Manager, AIA, PLA, LEED AP BD+C, CPHC
Justin Iovenitti – Energy Engineer (mid-Atlantic), RA, BPI Multifamily, LEED AP BD+C

Mr. Galloway joined New Ecology as a Project Manager in 2016, and in 2019 was promoted to Senior Project Manager, working on energy efficiency and green building strategies and certifications for diverse multifamily and nonprofit facilities. Joshua has practiced public interest design and sustainability for twenty years in the fields of architecture and landscape architecture. After earning his degree in landscape architecture from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1996, he established a Landscape Architecture practice in Charlottesville, VA. He then received his Master of Architecture degree from the University of Virginia, where he led the green roof and landscape work for the 2002 Solar Decathlon team, which won the Design and Livability category and placed second overall. As a Rose Architectural Fellow with Enterprise Community Partners, Joshua worked with underserved communities in Richmond, VA on historic renovations and new communities. His work has included development and dissemination of sustainability guidelines for non-profit developers and municipalities. At Community Housing Partners and Wiencek + Associates Architects + Planners, Joshua worked on adaptive re-use, renovation and new construction of 2,500+ housing units in the Mid-Atlantic. The scales of work included high rise towers in Baltimore, master planning in West Virginia, and Net-Zero duplexes in Virginia. He has led or co-led 40+ design charrettes on topics ranging from Healthy High Performance Homes to 30-acre mixed use/mixed income communities to Aging in Place from a regional scale.

Mr. Iovenitti joined New Ecology in 2019. He began his professional career in the architecture field with Cho Benn Holback + Associates. Working on a mix of new construction and adaptive reuse of historic properties, Justin gained an understanding of design documentation and coordination. Upon joining TerraLogos Energy Group, Justin acquired expertise in building science fundamentals. He was primarily responsible for residential energy analysis and diagnostic testing. Justin then spent over six years as a commissioning project manager with Advanced Building Performance. He confirmed the functional performance of complex mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems in commercial buildings. Justin completed commissioning efforts for schools, multifamily buildings, museums and corporate headquarters totaling over $1 billion in construction costs. He also led the firm’s first building enclosure commissioning projects. As Energy Engineer, Justin conducts energy audits, assembles work scopes for efficiency upgrades, reviews contractor progress and performs peer reviews of architectural and MEP designs. He reports to NEI’s Director of Engineering and collaborates extensively with project managers and other technical staff on high performance strategies. As a PHIUS+ Verifier, he is also a certified Passive House practitioner providing quality assurance to multifamily project teams.
