“I worked with Scott on several projects, I was the architect and he was in charge of the civil work. I found him to be both talented and reliable, as well as being able to present our work in a very professional manner. I would eagerly accept the opportunity to work with him again.” – J Graham, LEED AP, A.L.A. Architect at Designtec, Inc.
“Scott designed and coordinated the landscape construction and site development for two one-week “McNamara Blitz Builds” for the Metro Detroit Habitat for Humanity. He most ably directed both volunteers and professionals. Scott also effectively solicited the contribution of landscape materials including trees, shrubs and woody plants. The total value of Scott’s participation was in excess of $250,000. Habitat for Humanity-Detroit Inc. had never before added this key component to our developments. Scott’s contributions established a new dimension in our awareness of elements that are needed in community development. I found Scott to be enthusiastic, reliable, knowledgeable and a ‘can do’ individual.” – Joseph B. Newland, Jr., Co-Chair Construction Committee, Habitat for Humanity, Metro Detroit
