“As an organization that promotes environmental stewardship with our students in City Heights, we wanted to ‘walk the walk’ and make sure our building was sustainable. We chose to work with Rob Quigley, in part, because he has always been at the forefront of sustainable design.”

-Shara Fisler, Executive Director at Ocean Discovery Institute
