“I'm very proud that, through this LEED Platinum certified design, we've had such a positive impact on
an entire commercial sector - it illustrates what can be done right now to improve processes, increase efficiency,
and mitigate the environmental impact of food and wine production. Perhaps best of all, I know that the students who
come through this program, who work and study and learn in this lab, will make even greater advances.
With every new discovery, they will have a profound effect on the future of the industry.”

“One of the things I really enjoyed about working with the Flad team was their ability to internalize,
to listen, and to understand the project. To me, that's why the early steps in the project are so critical
and where Flad really shined.”

“I had been through some ER renovations before, but nothing like this. It just wowed me. I know this is all Lean methodology and 3P process, but it is really about the people.”
