One year since Thornton Tomasetti acquired Portland, Me.-based green building consulting firm Fore Solutions, the international engineering firm welcomes the addition of San Francisco Bay Area-based green building consultants, Simon & Associates, Inc., to its Building Sustainability Practice.

Simon is a LEED Fellow, a green building pioneer and leading authority in the industry. Her Bay Area team of green building consultants offers the practice new expertise in healthy building materials and LEED for Neighborhood Development, while providing expanded capability in green building project management and a wealth of experience in California’s green building market.


“Having a highly respected firm such as Simon & Associates join us significantly strengthens our leadership in the sustainability field,” said Hubbard.
