To celebrate Recollective’s eighth year in business, we’re throwing a masquerade ball at the HiVE! Party with us on October 30th 2014 at the HiVE. Bring a mask, or pick up a mask at the door. Appies, bar, DJ, great people, amazing times!
See you there!
We’re happy to welcome Junru Shen to Recollective as our newest Intern!
Junru’s interest in sustainability started from a green building project she participated in during her undergraduate study as a mechanical engineering student in China. Upon graduation, she continued her study in sustainable energy and entrepreneurship in United Kingdom, during which she met her other half and moved to Canada eventually. However, her passion in sustainability comes with her wherever she goes.
Ever since moving to Canada, Junru has been an active member of the CAGBC. She is passionate about LEED, building energy analysis, and all kinds of energy saving solutions. Her motivation kept her learning new stuff, from LEED to building performance analysis. She obtained her LEED AP this year and is now gaining more project experience through intern with Recollective.
Despite her obsession with green building, Junru also loves design. In her spare time, she reads all kinds of design books, from design philosophy as a whole concept to graphic design details. She’s also good at table tennis, which she used to play professionally.
Interns are short-term volunteer positions for gaining LEED / green building experience. If you are interested in this, please check out our Internship Program.
Eesmyal will be a speaker at the upcoming FUEL conference May 29 and 30, 2014!
“FUEL is a forum for leaders, entrepreneurs, designers and engaged citizens committed to co-creating a better world. This inaugural event will explore the future of how we live, work and lead across four sectors relevant to our city; Food, Design, Sustainability and Technology.”
We’re very proud to have our very own Jason Packer present at this year’s Living Future conference in Portland, the theme being Beauty and Inspiration! Jason will be presenting on his experience working on what will soon be the largest Living Building in the World, the Jim Pattison Centre of Excellence in Sustainable Building Technologies and Renewable Energy Conservation. Well done Jason! :)
Starting April 14, 2014 Eleanor MacPherson will be joining Recollective as our new Office Manager! Our outgoing Office Manager, Laura Williamson, will be moving to Kelowna for family reasons and will very much be missed.
Eleanor moved to Vancouver in the beginning of this year. She has spent the last 5 years managing accounts, charter booking packages and staff for a local yacht charter and yacht repair and maintenance company in Nanaimo while finishing her BBA (Business Administration) with a concentration in accounting from Vancouver Island University. She was a contributing member of the sustainability society during her studies and is currently an active Toastmaster, with ongoing participation on the executive for the Network Hub Toastmasters Club of Vancouver. She’s deeply passionate about social media and all things tech while fiercely defending social justice for man and nature both. In free time, she loves running, yoga and exploring this beautiful and diverse city. She is so excited to join the team at Recollective and contribute to such an inspiring organization.
