Acknowledgments

Many thanks to Leith Sharp, director of the Harvard Green Campus Initiative, for generously sharing her experience by writing the Foreword. Thanks also to Paul Shahriari, GreenMind Inc., for contributing the first draft of the chapter on green building project management software. Leith and Paul are two of the bright lights of the green building movement. Thanks to my editors at McGraw-Hill, Cary Sullivan and Joy Bramble Oehlkers, for championing this book. Thanks in addition to everyone who allowed us to interview them for this book, too many to acknowledge individually, including architects, engineers, facility managers, building owners, and developers. Thanks as well to the many architects, architectural photographers, and building owners who generously contributed project photos for the book. Thanks also to Heidi Ziegler-Voll for the illustrations she created specially for this book. Thanks go to Mike Shea and Eric Ridenour, two architects in Portland, Oregon, for their help with the formulation of the first 100 questions for an early version of the "400 Questions."

A special note of thanks goes to my editorial associate, Gretel Hakanson, for conducting the interviews, helping with the research, sourcing all the photos, and making sure that the production was accurate and timely. This is the fifth green building book that we've worked on together and the value of her contribution grows with each project. Thanks to those experts and friends who reviewed the manuscript and offered helpful suggestions and corrections: Anthony Bernheim, Cindy Davis, John Echlin, Stefanie Gerstle, Nathan Good, Steven Kendrick, James Meyer, Margaret Montgomery, Paul Schwer, and Alan Warner.

Thanks also to my wife, Jessica, for indulging the time spent on yet another green building book and for sharing my enthusiasm for green building.

Finally, many, many thanks to the thousands of passionate green building owners, designers, and builders who recognize the need for sustainable design solutions and work daily to implement them.
