Daniel Baur-McGuire

Bio for Presenter
Dan McGuire is the senior field inspector and trainer for The Element Group’s residential and commercial division. Dan is a HERS field rater, SAVE technician for HVAC testing, and certified in solar and wind assessment and installation. His role for The Element Group allows him to travel between five states, in the field testing and diagnosing buildings every day. Dan’s success is not only measured by the testing and verification process but also the success in acting as a liaison between architects, GCs, and subcontractors to find solutions and learn better strategies for energy compliance.

In the past, living in New Zealand for two years sparked his passion in building with sustainability and renewable energy. This exposed him to alternative building methods and the challenges of living off grid. Dan returned to Iowa and worked construction first as a framer then later as a Project Manager, on small additions and retrofit builds, and eventually for himself as a local contractor.

Dan currently resides on his sustainable hobby farm in rural Williamsburg, Iowa. When he is not traveling for work he can be found fishing the rivers, building cabinetry in his shop, or tending to his farm.

Dan graduated from the University of Iowa in 2008 with an Art Education degree and a BFA in metalsmithing. Dan can be contacted at or 319-440-6903.
