June 30th is the last day for CFMS' long time employee, Ed Trueman. Ed joined CFMS in 1993 and for the past couple of years has enjoyed semi-retirment while providing support services and wrapping up his remaining projects. He has been a valuable member of our team, professionally known for his attention to detail, and personally for his dry humour. After 29 years of service, we wish him all the best for his retirement!
May 2022 marks 30 years for CFMS! We are kicking off our celebrations by looking at the dynamic trio that would make CFMS what it is today. Mel James was our original founder in 1992, who added Ed and Wendy to the team in the couple of years that followed, and when Mel retired in 2012 he passed the torch onto them to carry the legacy. Here's a look at the timeline with some background history:
The CFMS team is pleased to announce that team member Jurij Dziuba has added a new credential to a growing list of qualifications, by successfully completing the Certified Energy Manager course and passing the exam. The CEM designation adds to existing LEED AP and CCP credentials, and his over 10 years experience providing commisisoning services with CFMS.
As are still in a pandemic, with uncertainty about the future lingering, for the time being we have opted to stick to a remote working model, to continue to do our part to continue to prevent the spread by eliminating a communal working space for our employees. CFMS is thankful we are in a position to do so, having tested out this model for the past 6 months with great success.
When asked what my favorite CFMS project was I found it difficult to pinpoint any one site, so instead I narrowed the field and came up with a handful of projects with different aspects that struck a chord with me.
"With my time at CFMS, I have worked on many projects. Many of them have been memorable, exciting, fun and challenging. When asked about my favourite project, the first one to pop to mind was the York University Bergeron Centre for Engineering Excellence." says project manager Jurij Dziuba. See what else he has to say about the project...
Though it's hard to list just one, one of my favourite's is ZAS Architects Canoe Landing Campus: Community Centre, Elementary Schools, and Childcare. What's not to love about this project? Writes CFMS' Kristine Quan
Starting our new "Get to Know the CFMS Team" series, highlighting our favourite projects from over the years that CFMS has provided commissioning for, is Vice President Ed Trueman. He has been around CFMS from the very beginning, as CFMS founder Mel James' first hire. With almost 30 years of commissioning experience, he's worked on a lot of projects over the years! Let's see what his favourite one is...
Coming soon - a new way to get to know the CFMS Team, by looking at some of our favourite projects, whether they are ones we have worked on, or ones that have special interest. CFMS has been in business since 1992, so needless to say, we have an extensive project list, and have worked on some unique projects, so it will be interesting to see what the team finds of interest to them personally!
CFMS will be closed March 28 to 31 as we are undergoing network upgrades from March 27 (evening) to 31 inclusive, and as a result we will not have access to or receive email sent during that period. We expect to be back online Monday April 1 2019.
