Green Building Florida    |   Testimonials

Gary Shlifer from Green Building Florida is passionately committed to the attainment of a more sustainable future for South Florida. His enthusiasm for the USGBC and LEED as a means to achieve this end is contagious. We felt fortunate to have him as the LEED consultant for the Boano-Lowenstein Residence. He is very knowledgeable of the process and very thorough in his documentation of submittals to the USGBC. With his help we were able to secure a silver LEED certification for this project. Thanks to his guidance through the process, the Boano-Lowenstein residence is one of the pioneer homes forging a sustainable path in our community.
