Vail, CO Colorado

AVON, Colorado – Forrest Watson, a project manager at Beck Building Company recently completed a class through the Building Performance Institute, and is now certified to do energy audits on homes, using a “systems approach” to understanding energy performance of a home.

“What we’re trying to achieve is to be able to identify how well the home is performing and how we can improve its energy use,” Watson said. “Safety is also a focus. There are a lot of homes that have older HVAC equipment which doesn’t function as efficiently as today’s equipment, so we’ve learned how to put a house to the test to see how it performs.”

The class was held at Colorado Mountain College in Edwards. It ended with a 200-question test followed by onsite testing.-

Watson has worked for Beck for six years, and has been a motivating force within the company to take on more LEED-certified projects.
