 “I have been fortunate to work with Lucy as both client and colleague over the past eight years, and continue to be impressed by her level of detail, project commitment, and selfless ability to challenge teams to exceed initial expectations. She has never failed to deliver on an assignment, and as an architect, has the rare ability to balance sound sustainability practices with client-focused cost control.”

-David Bertorelli, Client



“Learning any new approach to a familiar task is daunting. Fortunately, my first exposure to LEED in construction came on a project headed up by Lucy Williams. I quickly discovered, and have since come to appreciate, that her thorough approach to product and materials specifications as well as document submission were the key to success. I would welcome working with her on any project, LEED or otherwise, in the future”.
