Amanda Alphen

Amanda decided to go into business with her father and sister in 2008 upon graduating high school. Unfortunately for her this was the beginning of a recession. She learned a lot over the last 10 years and feels as though her company is more resilient because of the trials and tribulations that have made them stronger and wiser. The reason she believes they were able to succeed and grow through a recession was because they offered a service that cut energy costs in half, saving people a lot of money. In 2015 she was awarded “Outstanding Woman in Business” by the Family Business Association. She will continue to innovate the industry with unique materials and techniques that create state of the art airtight envelopes for buildings in New England.

Tiffany Alphen

Tiffany went from learning the field to taking on the role as Production Manager assisting 5 production crews a day while making sure the company maintained excellent customer satisfaction. Tiffany is BPI certified by the Building Performance Institute, Cel-Pak Pro trained through a cellulose provider National Fiber, has completed boot camp for Insulation and Air Sealing at The Center for Ecological Technology, is lead safe certified, as well as Fall Protection, Respiratory, and First Aid trained. Managing 15 men and woman in the field was just practice for her new role as a mother to two happy baby boys, Hunter and Jonathan. She spends more time being a mother than a manager lately, but she is always a resource for knowledge in the energy efficiency and project management world.

Chris came to Dolphin in January 2011 as an insulation installer. He quickly moved his way up to crew lead managing a crew insulating up to 5 houses a week / 20 a month / 240 a year! When you work on this many homes you learn a lot about how they are built differently and where you need to insulate in order to get them airtight, while keeping health and safety a priority. After 5 years of working in the field he became one of our very own energy specialists, performing extensive energy assessments on residential and commercial buildings and creating prioritized plans to bring energy efficiency solutions.Chris is BPI certified by the Building Performance Institute, Cel-Pak Pro trained through a cellulose provider National Fiber, has completed boot camp for Insulation and Air Sealing at The Center for Ecological Technology, is lead safe certified, as well as Fall Protection, Respiratory, and First Aid trained. Recently he attended 475 High Performance Supply’s passive home training to extend his knowledge of vapor smart membranes and high performance insulation assemblies such as Intello and densepack cellulose. Chris has become a valuable asset to our company and our family and is somebody we can all depend on, especially homeowners that work with him. If you get an assessment done by Chris you are in good hands.

Dave Flannery

Dave came to a few jobsites and loved using diagnostic testing to read the draftiness before and after insulating. It made him want to get the number down as low as possible on every project, resulting in the maximum energy savings and airtightness for the building. Being a son to a mother that works at the EPA, he was aware and conscious of the affects of energy and the environment. He soon become a leader in the field and over the last five years has learned everything from insulating to roofing, ventilation, hvac systems and ductwork, carpentry, drywall, and so much more. Dave is a very hard worker with attention to detail that is eager to learn and please. He has trained many of our other highly skilled crew lead and installers and continues to impress homeowners and building owners with the final product. We joke that Dave is the few in the industry that can manage to make insulation look sexy. He takes pride in his work and the final results it brings in regards to comfort and energy savings. If see him on your jobsite, you are about to get a job well done.
