I’m a self-employed consultant, a lecturer and go to expert in optimizing the energy use and performance of new and existing buildings.

I have consulted on more than 30 LEED projects, carrying out sustainable design consulting, HVAC commissioning, and detailed lighting and energy modelling for a wide range of projects. 

I’m actively involved in growing the market in my region, I’ve founded the local affiliate for IBPSA, and organised the first Argentinean Building Simulation Congress. I’m also an associate professor at the “BIM, new tools for project delivery” postgraduate diploma at the University of Buenos Aires, where I teach how to integrate building performance analysis into the design process.

In my free time I’m a dedicated father to my lovely Emilia and Luisa, and husband to Helen. I enjoy dancing tango or fixing my VW Kombi camper van… Again.



 Santiago has demonstrated a deep knowledge in the use of several simulation tools, and the ability to work under tight deadlines... he looks ahead of the problems and finds alternative ways to reach the goals. He has integrated well in multi-cultural teams, providing support to the different players. I highly recommend his work, as he is a valuable asset for any team.

"Santiago is one of the most professional people I've encountered in the course of my career. We met five years ago and as well as working on sustainability projects, we’ve run joint teaching sessions at the universities of Buenos Aires and La Plata, both of which are top-ranked in Argentina. Santiago is highly committed to his work, always bringing good solutions to the table. I’ve learned a lot from him. "

Anderson Letti, Energy Exper and Cx Agent at Estudio Gringber Felis

“… I met Santiago when founding IBPSA Argentina and since then we have worked together on a number of academic teaching jobs where he demonstrated his expertise in the field of energy performance and sustainability in buildings… Unfailingly kind and cordial, he is always ready to work and collaborate towards excellence. I always enjoy working with him.”
