Richard is the author of Green at No Cost. With the unique vantage point of a construction economist, he provides an in-depth look at promising and affordable opportunities for the future of urban planning, transportation, infrastructure, and buildings for built environments across the world. He has traveled extensively, always with an awareness of how cities do and do not work. He is a nationally recognized speaker on sustainability. His mantra is “Measure Everything Manage Anything.”
Richard is re-reading a book that his father loved, “Plain Speaking”, about his favorite president, Harry Truman. Their wisdom, along with the challenges and practicalities of building, became deeply embedded in Richard and has shaped his life.
