Myers is based in Stantec’s Chandler, Arizona, office where he will lead the project management, business development, and integration of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering services, and projects focused on envelope design, enclosure commissioning, and energy.
Throughout his career, Myers has contributed to advancing energy and carbon solutions within the built environment. When assessing a building, Myers takes a holistic approach to a buildings performance, looking at how all the components of the systems are integrated and work together with the goal of maximizing the overall building operations. Myers uses his extensive experience in building commissioning (both envelope and MEP), high performance design, and energy modeling to help clients realize the best solutions.
“Marcus’s experience leading commissioning and high-performance energy projects nationwide will be an invaluable resource as we look to grow our expertise in this critical area,” said Brian Larson, a senior vice president in Stantec’s Buildings group. “His passion, expertise, and drive to deliver high quality results will help us tremendously as we continue to expand our footprint in the commissioning and energy services arena.”
