Andrew Morrison is a Principal at Caneta. He is an expert in whole building energy modelling, having provided, since 2000, energy efficiency consulting and energy simulation services to design teams seeking LEED certification, improved building performance, energy guarantees and government incentives. Andrew was responsible for the development of LEED Canada’s 2009 Supplemental Modelling Guide. Other recent projects have included an evaluation of NECB 2011 requirements in Newfoundland and Labrador, an assessment of the potential for condensing rooftop furnaces in the Ontario market, and the development of CBIP prescriptive measure sets and performance requirements for offices, hotels, schools and multi-residential buildings. Andrew was the team leader for the review of all submissions to the Commercial Building Incentive Program (CBIP) and ecoEnergy design validation program from 2004 to 2012, supervising technical staff within Caneta and a significant number of subcontactors.

In addition to his whole building energy modelling, Andrew has also been involved with a variety of ground-source heat pump projects for organizations such as Natural Resources Canada, ASHRAE, and the Geothermal Heat Pump Consortium. These projects included: the development of the GS2000 software, commercial design workshops, an investigation of service and maintenance costs, ASHRAE’s Commercial/Institutional Building Ground-Source Heat Pump Engineering Manual and numerous DOE 2.1E energy simulations of ground-source buildings.

Andrew has a B.A.Sc. in Engineering from the University of Waterloo and a M. Eng. from Carleton University and is a registered professional engineer in Ontario. Andrew is currently listed on CaGBC’s Experienced Modellers list.

Brian Crossman is a Principal at Caneta, leading the 3P (private, public, partnership) energy modelling guarantee business. Brian and his team are responsible for modelling and predicting building energy consumption, to establish a guaranteed energy target prior to building construction. He has an extensive understanding of the 3P RFP requirements, and works closely with the Design and Construction team to optimize the energy use of the building, ensuring the most cost effective design. In the last 10 years, Caneta has been involved in establishing the guaranteed energy target on over thirty-five 3P projects across Canada.

Brian has extensive experience working with energy simulation tools such as DOE 2.1e, DOE 2.2, EE4, and eQUEST. He has created and/or reviewed over 100 energy models as part of building integrated design, 3P guarantee modelling, LEED, building code compliance(SB-10), utility incentive programs (HPNC), and 3rd party modelling reviews.

Brian has also overseen numerous building research projects for our clients including technology assessments, DSM equipment analysis for OPA and utilities, and technology/market analysis in support of NRCan energy efficiency regulations for HVAC and refrigeration equipment. He is responsible for the management of projects and deliverables to our clients, and acts a technical advisor and lead to other Caneta staff. He has also undertaken numerous studies and analyses evaluating the performance of building codes, including NECB-2011, ASHRAE 90.1-2010, ASHRAE 90.1-2004, ASHRAE 90.1-89, and MNECB-1997. In 2005 and later in 2010, Brian, along with other senior Caneta staff, performed the background research and energy modelling for the development of the Ontario Building Code (SB-10). Brian has also been involved in ground-source heat pump design and feasibility projects, including system modelling, ground heat exchanger sizing, and piping design.

Brian has a B.A.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Waterloo, and is a registered Professional Engineers (P.Eng) in the province of Ontario. He is currently listed on CaGBC’s Experienced Modellers list.
