– Our Mission –

Zerodraft Maryland was founded in 2008 with the mission of sharing our knowledge of building science to help our clients achieve higher-performance, lower-cost and more environmentally friendly commercial facilities and homes.

About Us

The firm’s roots go back over twenty years, to Chris Pfund’s Baltimore-based design-build practice. As a small team of professional architects and project managers, his company had long incorporated sustainable design and construction principles into its commercial and residential commissions.  In 2008, Chris and his son Kurt, who had recently graduated from the University of Maryland, decided that the time was right to make energy conservation work the primary focus and mission of a new company.  While Chris pursued advanced training in energy diagnostics and air sealing for large buildings, Kurt specialized in residential energy auditing, and Zerodraft Maryland was born. 

About Us

 

After a year or two establishing its footing and honing its craft, the company found that there was substantial interest and demand for energy conservation services, as more and more facility managers, homeowners, and utility programs were looking for qualified local contractors to help meet energy efficiency goals.  Over the years, Zerodraft has steadily added to its capabilities, staff roster, and reputation as one of the leading locally-owned energy management firms in the region, servicing some of the area’s most distinguished facilities and quickly growing from four to some forty people on staff.

About Us

 

In 2010, Zerodraft Maryland became a partner in the BGE Smart Energy Savers Program and a registered affiliate of Maryland Home Performance with ENERGY STAR®. In 2011, Zerodraft was selected as a Multifamily Quick Home Energy Checkup (QHEC) contractor, and in 2012, the company launched its Efficient Lighting Group, called Zeronet USA, to help facility managers and property owners capitalize on high-efficiency lighting upgrades. In 2013, Zerodraft was recognized by the Baltimore Business Journal as the #1 fastest-growing privately held company based in the Greater Baltimore area. In 2014, the firm added Aeroseal® duct sealing to its list of in-house service capabilities, and in 2015, the company initially chosen as an exclusive Pepco contractor to service assisted living facilities (nursing homes and dormitories) with a customized in-unit energy efficiency program.

About Us

 

With each passing year, we get closer to our goal of helping building owners achieve cost-effective net-zero energy buildings which help reduce our environmental impact and our dependence on volatile foreign energy sources.
