Quotes

"It is exciting to see the Empire State Building example being replicated," said RMI Co-founder and Chief Scientist Amory Lovins. "With the country's 120 million buildings consuming 42 percent of our nation's total energy and 72 percent of our electricity we must accelerate the adoption of deep energy saving retrofits-even at the pace of hundreds of buildings at a clip across entire portfolios."
Forest City says that it was a fixed price contract, and that Skanska is responsible. A spokesman " attributed the overruns to Skanska’s “failures and missteps as the construction manager,” adding that “they are employing a typical strategy to try to weasel out of that obligation” to pay the costs of the project."
WHAT IS IT?: Ocala's Calvin Wonders wrote: "My wife Joyce and I were wondering if you know what is being built next to I-75 just north of Ocala by the Skanska Construction firm. Inquiring minds want to know. If you don't know that will be fine, we will all learn in due time. Thanks."
...energy policies, the country’s strong, stable economy and excellent natural wind resources, which can supply domestic energy to the country. "We are also especially pleased to be here with our strong partner AMSA, which is demonstrating to the world that a global mining company can be a leader in clean, domestic energy.”"
