Justin Wilson works with national and regional builders on new construction of residential and commercials buildings and forensic investigations on building sites all over North America to find solutions to problems in the building processes that affect energy, comfort, and durability. He also uses this insight to work with leading building product manufacturers on new product development, product refinements, installation and maintenance guidelines.
Thermal enclosure improvements, indoor air quality, occupant comfort, HVAC integration and design of homes are his primary industry interests. He also has a passion for affordable net-zero energy homes with advanced and durable thermal enclosures. As the Environment & Sustainability Manager with McStain Neighborhoods in Boulder, CO Justin was a key player in designing and developing several of the first production net-zero homes in the US. He knows about the good, the bad, and the ugly of production net zero building.
Justin’s Bachelor of Science Degree is in music. He is an accomplished Jazz and Classical musician who one time played Paul Creston’s Concertino for Marimba and Orchestra solo to a live audience at full tilt. Turns out, Justin’s love for music is only love; his passion lies in the building industry, which he discovered while swinging a hammer to make ends meet. Since then, he’s studied mechanical engineering and physics, and has since worked as an Engineer at a plastic component manufacturing facility.
These days, the Construction Instruction mobile app is Justin’s main part-time job and one of his proudest achievements. It thrills him to watch the user base keep growing and it is rewarding to know that people are gaining valuable and innovative industry knowledge through the app.
