Zero Emissions Building Exchange
Roberto's journey through the building industry extends back over two decades and includes stops in Ottawa and Montreal before settling in Vancouver. In addition to his mechanical engineering degree, he has extensive experience in both new developments and existing buildings. Before joining ZEBx in early 2020 as the Director of Programs, Roberto had successfully taken on project management roles for architectural millwork suppliers, a general contractor and a national property management firm. He also worked in the building science group of a national consulting engineering firm, specializing in building assessments, capital planning, asset management, energy studies and building performance. Roberto is a member of the Energy Step Code Council, some of its subcommittees and numerous advisory groups in BC. Through his various roles, he has become very well acquainted with the real estate, property management, consulting and construction industries. Most importantly, Roberto has a deep-rooted belief that the building industry has both a responsibility for climate action and a major contribution to make to address the climate crisis.
