Not only do I believe that Business is a tool capable of creating positive change in the world – I believe it is one of the most powerful tools. In fact, the only other tool that I can imagine with similar potential is Art.
Vital Engineering Corp. is one of those businesses that is quietly changing the world for the better, and I am proud to note that they are located mere blocks from my home as well as my office in Sherwood Park, Alberta. I’ve mentioned them in a previous post, but I would like to draw further attention to what they do:
We guide our clients through the process of sustainable development, from efficient traditional design to innovative alternative energy systems. We hear your needs and offer a balanced approach.
Vital Engineering works with individuals, developers, architects, communities, businesses, and municipalities. Our knowledge of available funding mechanisms and our inherently conservative designs can bring anyone closer to living and working with less waste and energy. This integrated design process results in the lowest building life cycle cost and the healthiest interiors for occupants. We believe that sustainable development comes through changes that enhance quality of life.
Our business is building relationships based on trust.
Their work is achieving recognition in wider circles, with President & Founder Dean Turgeron being awarded the ASET Technologist of the Year and a 2010 Emerald Award Finalist for “Individual Contribution to Alternative Energy Development in Alberta”.
If you are planning a building project, be sure to consult with Vital to find out what they can do for you. The earlier in the process you talk to these guys, the more they can do for you.
They’ve recently produced with short video to present their vision of how to strike a balance between economic stability and environmental sustainability. Featuring voiceover by Tricia Helfer, I think you’ll enjoy it.
