Cathy McDonald, BEng, EMIT – Partnership Development, Design & Sales Support
Cathy has a background in mechanical engineering. She took a different path that led her into the theatre business, where she was General Manager for two independent theatre companies in Vancouver. She is very excited to have returned to her engineering roots, and her first passion for renewable energy and conservation solutions. Cathy is an Energy Manager in Training with the Association of Energy Engineers.
Qmata was formed in 1998, as Qmata Plumbing and Heating Inc, by founder Mathew Hallam-Eames. Mat was an active plumber and gas fitter, working in all kinds of commercial and residential buildings in Seattle and since 1998 on Vancouver Island. Mat had a passion for finding low-energy solutions, as he installed and studied hydronic heating systems, and solar evacuated tubes to supply heating, hot water and pools. He could see that a holistic approach was needed, and he developed a vision for how a building can take advantage of localized energy – from the sun, air, waste heat, ground and other sources. But he was very frustrated with the difficulty in getting different components to work together, as one system, because of proprietary barriers in the marketplace.
Mat decided to return to his original career as a software architect, to develop compatible, easy to install and use controls. The company name was changed to Qmata Technologies Inc in 2013, and we are excited to be close to launching our first control device, the FieldBOS, this coming October.
