Thomas E. Anderson, 1951 – 2020
Founding Principal of Cx Associates, 1994-2013
Tom Anderson established Cx Associates in 1994, before anyone was doing building commissioning in the Northeast. He saw an opportunity to engineer better buildings and went out on his own to forge a path towards lower energy HVAC system design and operations. Tom commissioned Vermont’s first LEED certified building, the ECHO Leahy Center for Lake Champlain in 2001; commissioned over 4 million square feet of new buildings; and provided design reviews for over 5 million square feet of space over the course of his career. Cx Associates, a firm dedicated to commissioning and energy efficiency, grew from Tom’s one-man shop to having nine employees and a reputation as a leading commissioning and energy efficiency program evaluation provider at the time of Tom’s departure from the firm in 2013.
