Christine Reinders is passionate about sustainability and building energy performance. She is the Boston office sustainability leader and also a mechanical engineer. Educated as both an engineer and architect, Christine is focused on finding connections between systems design and architectural design—creating both beauty and energy efficiency in her work.

 

Christine recently led a pilot team on the implementation of the new software Sefaira for conceptual performance modeling. Her experience on this pilot is captured in a recent webinar hosted by Architectural Record, “How 4 Leading Architects are winning everyday with Performance Based Design.” She is also an associate member of ASHRAE serving on the Grassroots Government Activities committee in Boston, and is a corresponding member of national Technical Committee 7.6 Building Energy Performance, and Technical Committee 9.10 Laboratory Systems. Christine looks at design through a technical lens to create functional and intriguing spaces integrated with high-performance solutions.

The overwhelming evidence is clear. Humans are having a profoundly adverse effect on the climate. For this reason, I’m passionate about sustainability and see performance-based design as a tool that provides an opportunity to change the future. It is our responsibility as designers to create the best solutions for our clients and society; sustainability is inherently part of this process. Improving building energy performance is an exciting ongoing professional challenge, one whose success will have a direct impact on the quality of my life and the community in which I live.
