"On behalf of our entire team, our coaching staff and our Board of Directors I would like to say thank you, Jean-Pierre, at least initially, for your support in getting our van transportation program up and running. The support that Siteworks has provided us is critical to getting these vehicles safely on the road so that we can better deliver on our Mission of enhancing lives through alpine skiing. This is a huge step forward for our program and we could not have taken it without you so thank you!!!!"
-Bradford Saxe, Program Director of Meadows Race Team

“I LOVE the Ecoflats! This is the type of people-first green building project that we should replicating by the hundreds, all over the Northwest. It seems like Jean-Pierre has really put a lot of thought into a compact, energy-conserving, transit-oriented green development that really maximizes what makes Portland such a special place. All this and solar too!”

A few things stand out: his passion for good, buildable design; his drive for fully integrating creativity and community; and his commitment to helping younger designers and artists change the world through their work. Jean-Pierre is also a PNCA alum.”
