Growing Sustainability Firm Promotes Two Employees

DENVER, CO— Ambient Energy congratulates Clayton Bartczak and Christopher Morales who were both recently promoted within the growing firm. Clayton Bartczak, LEED AP BD+C, O+M, SFP, first joined Ambient Energy in 2010 as a Sustainability Consultant and has since been promoted to Sustainability Team Leader and Project Manager. After a little over a year with Ambient Energy, Christopher Morales, PE, CEM, LEED AP O&M, has been promoted from a Commissioning Engineer to Commissioning Project Manager.

Bartzcak is a graduate of Colorado State University with a Master’s in Construction Management. He is also a published author having contributed to the MIT Press publication on an article entitled Constructing Green: The Social Structures of Sustainability. When asked about his upcoming contributions to the firm in his new position, Bartzcak said, “I’m looking forward to implementing several strategies that will help our team serve our clients and project teams more efficiently and effectively. I’m also excited about working on Ambient Energy’s first Living Building Challenge and WELL Building projects.”

Ambient-Energy_Clayton_webBartzcak has contributed to Ambient Energy’s success through his work on some his favorite projects including the CSU Pavilion Student Center in Fort Collins, at his alma mater, the TRANSPO Operations and Maintenance Facility in South Bend, Indiana, and the Alliance Center in Denver, a non-profit, community based office building that houses sustainability focused organizations and companies. Founder, President and CEO, Renee Azerbegi commented, “I have been impressed with Clayton’s initiative and leadership in social and environmental causes, his consistent positive outlook, and his evolving mastery of sustainability consulting.”

Morales is a graduate of the University of Colorado Denver in Mechanical Engineering and is a licensed Professional Engineer. When asked about his promotion, Morales commented, “My primary goal over the next year is to help Ambient Energy continue to improve our new construction commissioning processes and to develop and grow our existing building services by further applying my engineering knowledge and background.”

Ambient-Energy_Christopher_web1Morales’ background allows him to analyze new construction and existing building commissioning and energy audit processes to help clients more precisely determine energy-savings, implementation costs, and cost effectiveness estimates. Azerbegi added, “With his unique perspective and passion for optimizing the performance of buildings, Christopher has demonstrated excellent project management skills and has proven invaluable to keeping our existing clients happy.”  The projects he has been most proud of working on for Ambient Energy include the Alliance Center in Denver, the Parker Recreation Center Renovation Commissioning project, and the US Forest Service Wall Ranger Station.

Bartzcak and Morales most recently spoke together about their mutual favorite project, the Alliance Center, with Alliance Center Executive Director Jason Page, at the national 2015 IFMA World Workplace that took place October 7 – 9 in Denver.
