Dupsky is a dedicated professional known for his commitment to excellence, technical prowess and generous spirit, has carved a career path marked by profound achievements and impactful contributions. Throughout his tenure at ETI, which started in 2007 as a CAD technician, Dupsky has ascended to principal and partner status in 2023, bolstered by his professional engineering licensure in 2018. Renowned for his innovative problem-solving acumen, he has spearheaded numerous projects, including the transformation of energy systems in facilities such as detention centers and schools. He specializes in solving unique challenges with existing systems. In one case, Dupsky led a project to install hydronic glycol preheat coils for a high school district because they were losing cooling capacity. The installed coils rejected heat directly from the geothermal loop in the winter to preheat the outside air before the heating coil helping to lower the loop field temperatures and reduce compressor operation. They also installed dry-bed fluid coolers to provide additional cooling capacity during the winter. Dupsky also is involved in leadership positions in the controls, details, specification and CAD/Revit committees focused on the advancing ETI’s quality of work. He also has presented at an American Institute of Architects conference on energy code changes helping to further advance the technical knowledge of the building design industry. Dupsky is actively engaged in organizations such as ASHRAE and volunteering for charitable causes such as the Micah House Homeless Shelter and Capital Humane Society. Dupsky also finds joy in leisure pursuits, indulging in family game nights with his wife and children, and embarking on adventures to scenic locales.
