Energy analyst/mechanical engineer
Shashank is an energy analyst at Rushing. He is passionate about the environment and his focus is on energy management strategies that can reduce the overall impact of building energy use. He is particularly interested in the possibilities of whole building energy simulation to analyze the interactions between the building and its HVAC system.
Shashank completed his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT University), India. After graduation, the field experience he gained as an MEP on-site engineer fueled his interest in the design aspect of the building industry. After completing his master’s degree in mechanical engineering from North Carolina State University, Raleigh, Shashank moved to Seattle to work as a mechanical designer where he gained valuable experience in the design of modular construction.
At Rushing, his goal is to provide potential building energy savings measures well before the first brick is laid. He passed the PE exam in Oregon and is accruing the required experience before applying for his license in Spring 2022. Shashank is also working towards getting his Building Energy Modeling Professional (BEMP) certification.
Outside work Shashank spends much of his spare time playing soccer (KTBFFH) and badminton. He also enjoys hiking and hopes to hike the Stampede Trail someday.
