Our Firm

EQ is a collaborative consulting firm.

We bring together architects, developers, and building owners to create high performance buildings and communities.

We believe that measurement informs design. Our professionals apply integrated design and computer simulation to influence projects, and use post-occupancy metering and performance data to test and validate our design tools. 

Our core services include energy modeling, sustainability consulting, advanced energy system feasibility studies, building labelling, commissioning, and resource metering / verification services. 

Current high performance building standards are future minimum building code requirements. Buildings will soon be mandated to consume net zero resources by design, and owners will be required to measure, analyse and report their energy and water consumption. These challenges create an opportunity for the design and construction community to engage in the creation of more efficient, comfortable, and resilient buildings, resulting in cost effective operations and maintenance.


Influenced Design. Passionately Practiced.


EQ’s history began in 2005 as the consulting division of Provident Energy Management, a leading provider of submetering and building automation services.

The consulting division quickly grew to a practice with over 100 projects annually in the commercial, institutional, and multi-unit residential sectors, with a full-time staff of 18 professionals. 

EQ Building Performance was established in 2017 to focus on its core consulting services, while Provident remains focused on its industry-leading submetering and building automation services.

EQ and Provident are fully integrated members of the Cricket Energy group of companies: www.cricketenergy.com
