A Central Team Member.

From an early age, Padraic was inclined toward two central interests: architecture and the environment. Particularly enamored with the performance of building envelopes and energy efficiency, he found green building to be a natural marriage of these two passions. 

Hailing from Ireland, Padraic completed his Master’s of Environmental Design while living in Winnipeg, ultimately selecting the city as the place where he wanted to build his career. Now, as an Associate for the national sustainability consulting practice Footprint, Padraic guides buildings in his community through the certification process for green building rating systems, verifying predicted efficiencies through energy modelling.

“In my work, I have to take the long-view – what can we invest in now from a design perspective, to create savings down the road? Seeing that mindset starting to take hold as a broader trend – that's hopeful.” 

With more than a decade of experience, Padraic has the technical skills to produce innovative sustainable solutions, and a proactive, and goal-oriented approach that is trusted by both clients and colleagues. Well regarded in the industry, he has built up a diverse range of projects, specializing in sustainable design and energy-efficiency. Padraic’s work ethic and clear communication approach style steers the project toward success right from the start.

Padraic’s projects require dedication from beginning to end, often stretching on for months or even years. Seeing the built environment evolve from designs sketched on a piece of paper to a fully formed building with the green certification plaque hanging on the finished walls – this process is what truly motivates Padraic.
