Larry has enjoyed fostering ongoing relationships with clients. At Riverdale Country School, Larry initially oversaw a Facilities Condition Assessment (FCA)in 2000. In 2007, SHG provided interim facilities director services as it assisted in the recruitment of a new director. Later, in 2013, subsequent work with Riverdale included a second FCA, operational benchmarking, and a comprehensive energy and sustainability program. Larry’s involvement at Holton Arms School started with the development of an interim and turn around management team. Currently, SHG continues to provide technical support for project management, retro-commissioning and operations guidance at Holton Arms. SHG’s initial work at Albright College included interim management. This later evolved into Project Management of a $30 million science building. The Stone House Group scope of work included obtaining grants and incentives, LEED certification, a Utility Master Plan, energy modeling and commissioning.
