Energy efficiency is what it’s all about for our clients, and that’s why our Building Automation Controls division is so important.

We design, build and engineer new controls systems, and we can remove existing controls and replace, integrate or install additional units. It’s an incredibly complex process, and that’s why we’re so grateful to have Clint Walker as our Controls Field Lead.

Clint joined Calvert Controls last summer and very quickly made himself an indispensable part of our team. He coordinates the efforts of his team and makes certain that they are always delivering results for our clients.

What got you interested in a career in this field?

I originally became interested in this field while working doing HVAC service work. Occasionally it would require troubleshooting using the building automation software. I thought it would be beneficial to see how the two fields come together.

What are the biggest challenges you face in leading the Controls division?

The biggest challenge in leading the Controls Division is coordinating the field staff and the jobs with so many different moving parts, along with controls being so dependent on other trades.

What is the most enjoyable part of leading your team?

The most enjoyable part of leading the team is helping others grow, learn new skills and get exposure to different things while ensuring jobs are completed and customers are satisfied.

What project are you most proud of at Calvert Controls?

One of the projects I am most proud of was a 6-story office building where we removed Siemens and installed Honeywell controls. This project had a very tight schedule and included retrofitting VAVs, integrating self-contained units, all new controls on the condenser water plant, along with other miscellaneous equipment throughout the entire building and parking garage. By the team completing this work in a timely manner, we were able to provide service to this customer on several other projects within this building as well as others.

What do you enjoy doing most outside of work?

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and sports.

What’s something that your co-workers would be surprised to learn about you?

My coworkers would be surprised to learn that I am the first person in my family to get into the building trades.

What do you love most about working at Calvert Controls?

The thing I love most about Calvert Controls is the potential growth of the entire company and the support that they provide to ensure everyone is successful.
