Jay has more than 24 years of MEP engineering design experience at C3. He joined C3 in 1995 and was originally focused on HVAC and plumbing design. In 2002, C3 became a charter member of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) and Jay embraced the sustainability movement; currently, he heads up our sustainable design group.
Among his accomplishments, Jay was the sustainable consultant (LEED Administrator) for the Macallen Building project, the first high-rise residential building in Boston to receive LEED Gold rating. He was also the LEED administrator on a new construction project in Connecticut that achieved LEED Platinum, the highest certification level. This required many creative strategies, including renewable energy and cutting-edge building automation systems. Jay was the engineer of record and LEED administrator for a new high-rise dormitory at Northeastern University and was invited to lecture NU students on sustainable design.
Jay’s background in engineering design—including energy and water efficiency, system options, sustainable products, and indoor air quality—creates a seamless connection to sustainability.
He holds a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering with a minor in ocean engineering from the University of New Hampshire.
Jay, his wife Jennifer and their five children enjoy outdoor activities such as going to the beach, fishing, hiking, and simply spending time with family and friends.
