Sherry Carter, PHD
Microclimate Ice & Snow Inc. (MI&S) is a specialty consulting firm that works with building developers, owners and architects to first identify ice and snow collection on buildings and structures and understand it’s behaviour, and then provide tailored recommendations to reduce falling, sliding or wind-released ice and snow from roofs, façades, and structural elements. The first step the MI&S team takes is to conduct a general design evaluation in order to determine which services our clients require. The MI&S team works closely with the client to ensure that the service recommendations that are made are economical, practical and aesthetically acceptable, and are based on a balanced approach between design mitigation and operational procedures.
