Finding our name ~ Red Car Analytics!
As engineers in today's world, we are focused on a broader mission of decarbonizing the built environment and working toward a carbon-free planet by driving solutions to higher building performance and true energy efficiency.
On a train, the engine is the first car, with the power to propel the rest of the train forward and the caboose is the last car, usually painted red, but sometimes painted in colors to match the engine at the front of the train.
Before the 1980s the purpose of the caboose was to provide a rolling headquarters for the train's conductor, brakemen, and crew by providing shelter to sleep and a place to keep records. This team kept the train on track by handling switching or inspecting the train for problems, such as braking issues, shifting loads, broken or dragging equipment, overheated axle bearings and derailment threats.
At Red Car Analytics we consider ourselves like a train with our services focused on integrating building design upfront with building operations at the end of the building cycle.
As the Red Car Analytics team our firm is built on the strength of teamwork and the love for the field of building consulting.
We offer "bookend services" in building design, by providing energy modeling and analysis upfront and commissioning and validation of operations at the end.
We are the Red Car. We are data geeks, obsessed with energy efficiency and building science.
