Kirk T. Mescher, P.E., LEED® AP

Kirk T. Mescher, P.E., LEED® AP, is a founding partner of CM Engineering Inc. Throughout his career, Kirk has been a leader in design, development and installation of ultra high efficiency heating and cooling systems. In the early 1980s, he developed and patented an air-to-air energy recovery system that allows heating and cooling energy to be captured and recycled in streams of inside and outside ventilating air. For the past eight years, Kirk has been developing high efficiency ground source geo-exchange heating and cooling systems for schools, with an emphasis on retrofit designs for older facilities. His “One Pipe” system features installation costs that are among the lowest in the entire geo-exchange industry. Currently, Kirk has more than 100 one-pipe geo-exchange installations to his credit, and with more than 65 of these systems found in schools, colleges and universities. An ASHRAE Member, Kirk authored the cover article of the October 2009 ASHRAE Journal, “One Pipe Geothermal Design—Simplified GCHP System.” He co-authored “High Performance Schools” in the May 2007 ASHRAE Journal. In 2009, he received ASHRAE’s Distinguished Service Award, and he was named an ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer for 2011-2013.
