Shervin Akhavi is the principal of BlueGreen Consulting Group.

Shervin leads a specialised team of building enclosure testing experts that are committed to quality, healthy, comfortable and durable buildings.  We focus on flexible client services. Our views on buildings are tempered by years of working with a diverse range of professionals that range from engineering firms, architects and building owners that include residential, commercial and institutional.

We believe high performance buildings are healthy, bright, beautiful, super comfortable as well as affordable to buy, renovate, maintain and operate.

Through the EnerGuide for Houses, the ecoENERGY, and the Energy Star for New Houses programs we visited countless old and new homes and buildings both before and after retrofits were completed. We also specified shell upgrades to countless vintage and new GTA homes. This experience gave us both anecdotal and empirical data on what kind of work improved building efficiency, but more importantly, what type of effort was wasted.
