Populus is a growing sustainability consulting firm based in Boulder, CO, www.wearepopulus.com.  We have an immediate need for an experienced, knowledgeable, and personable HERS Rater / energy consultant.  As a member of the Populus Applied Building Science division, a successful candidate will consult to builders, developers, owners, and architects regarding cost-effective strategies for compliance with local green building codes (arguably the most stringent in the nation) as well as LEED-H, ENERGY STAR, Passive House, etc. for single-family and multi-family buildings.  As local codes requires HERS Indices as low as 10 for new construction and remodel projects, a deep understanding of low energy envelope and mechanical system design and renewable energy integration is a must.  Further, this type of design requires a firm grasp of proper detailing for vapor and infiltration issues.
