December 9, 2020 – Canadian Innovations

John Molnar, Founder, CEO, CTO, CoEng 2020

After 10 years in design and sales of leading edge Heating, Ventilating, and Air-Conditioning / Refrigeration (HVAC/R) Systems, John Molnar has founded CoEng Advisors to set out and make a measurable difference in the sustainability of the existing building market. He is a Professional Engineer in Ontario, Past-President of the Hamilton Chapter of ASHRAE, a LEED Accredited Professional. He has built his reputation through strong ethics in an industry that challenge’s one’s character every day. John’s guiding compass is ensuring that what is being done is in the best interest of the client.

Having walked through hundreds of building mechanical rooms, it’s obvious that there is much more that needs to be done to ensure that the building owners and tenants can afford to operate their buildings in the coming years. It is absolutely shocking to see and quantify the waste of resources which is occurring in buildings today. Change is achievable, so long as the right team is put together for each client. CoEng’s REA platform facilitates team of professionals to collaborate on providing their mutual client’s needs.

Pierre Blanchet, President, Idénergie inc.
