"I was strongly led to mesh my personal philosophy with my business, and green building was an amazing discovery and turning point for me. Leadership on this issue is the most critical to me because it is lacking in the standard business model where profits and other business-oriented goals tend to push the care for human beings and the environment to the background. We're providing design-build services for Steve and Elaine Wyman's green dream home in St. John's County. With five children and nine grandchildren, they said they felt that sustainable design and construction is the responsible approach for the present and the future."
