Sharp Roof Garden Proposal – CHECK!

We submitted a bid package yesterday for a large green roof project on Sharp Hospital just down the street in Kearny Mesa.Thank you Pari and Todd for your help preparing the very large re4sonse to their RFP. It’s a very interesting 5,000 sq ft design by Glenn Schmidt and company that incorporates the opening notes of “Ode to Joy”. Patient recovery rooms look out onto the roof top and the view of a beautiful garden will speed up their recovery time.

We’re bringing in an expert colleague from Chicago, Greg Raymond, who has installed over a half million square feet of green roof over the last 10 years – and I recently hired a Cal Poly Graduate student as job foreman. Plus we have a new hire for an entry level laborer – let’s get this one!

We can use your help – if you know anyone at Sharp to that has any influence on purchasing, we are dealing with Time Crowe. Decision will be made by Wednesaday the 28th, so make your calls today!
