"I woke up this morning thinking what an incredible job you all did yesterday on the … presentation. In less than three MONTHS(!) you brought three YEARS(!) of gobbledygook into a cohesive set of principles enabling a $210 million effort that brings Science [at Carnegie Mellon University] into a knowable future … Wow, yesterday was incredibly impressive. Thank you all, each and every one." Ralph Horgan, Associate Vice President, Campus Design and Facility Development | Carnegie Mellon University
