Kudrinko’s Grocery Opens It’s Sustainable Doors to #GEDO1326/09/2013
Neil Kudrinko from Kudrinko’s Grocery, Sustainable Building & Business
What were the motivations, or inspirations surrounding how Neil became involved or how Kudrinko’s vision of ‘green’ came to be?
Neil’s main inspiration or his “aha” moment came while at Carleton University. He gives much credit to Professor Patricia Ballamingie of the Geography and Environmental Studies Department.
“Professor Ballamingie opened my eyes to the possibilities and potential that exists in building efficiencies into our built environment so that our buildings would be more efficient in light of the exterior climate.”
Neil goes on to say that it was very important to look at all the different systems at Kudrinko’s. HVAC, refrigeration, air quality inside etc. – all these systems had to be made efficient and were done at the same time, in order for the building to gain the maximum investment potential & energy efficiency & savings.
“All of the systems need to work together – in a holistic way.” Neil says.
Neil enjoys being involved, he likes to share information and knowledge, and encourages peers in investing in sustainable building and business practices.
Neil’s Message of Renewable Energy Inspiration
“Your success will only be measure in your desire to make it happen. Have faith in your understanding of what is possible and go for it.”
