Jeff Weston, P.Eng. is a mechanical engineer and principal with IMEC Mechanical, a design build building HVAC contractor he co-founded in 1995. Constantly striving to improve building HVAC energy performance and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, while simultaneously minimizing cost, led him to the invention of Thermenex – a patent pending hydronic system. Thermenex is an acronym for Thermal Energy Exchange. The system treats large building as resources of thermal energy and minimizes the destruction of energy.

He installed his second system in the City of Coquitlam’s Poirier Sport and Leisure Complex. The tour will be of the Coquitlam’s second and third systems which share thermal energy amongst four of Coquitlam’s Civic buildings, including City Hall. A graduate of UBC in 1987, UBC installed the third Thermenex system and now has 3 more systems.

Darcy Hart has been with IMEC for 15 years, coming from a controls contractor back ground, he has developed the system that controls the energy flow within Thermenex.
