While Todd Collins didn’t start his career in the building industry, he quickly developed a interest in architecture and building. While looking for ways to develop his growing passion for energy efficient construction he discovered the Passive House method of building. It soon became obvious that while there was a clear method for constructing high performance buildings, the lack of quality building products was a barrier difficult to overcome. Seeing a great opportunity to mesh his working life with his lives passion he formed A&E Building Systems in 2011. In a short period Todd developed a steady client base and has expanded the companies offerings to over a dozen different products and systems. Todd is a member of the Denver Passive House Alliance board and is active in the CGBG and many other affiliated groups.
