"I was an environmental activist as a kid, cleaning up the beaches. My dad was a real estate agent. He said that it’s impossible to construct buildings without harming the planet. But from my studies and experience I now know we can produce buildings that are not harming the planet, with the right criteria in place we can have buildings that are helping the planet! Seamless integration of sustainability is the goal, and with the correct management and processes it can be easy and pain free."
