"I manage an Energy Industry Study Program each year with EIA participants at the Department of Energy and always request Charles to be our guest speaker because the evaluations on his presentation are top notch! The topic of building science and sustainable architecture is very interesting to our group (both professionally and personally), but what really makes his presentation wonderful is his extensive knowledge, advice, and humor. I get requests each year to make it a longer session and to include field trips to visit him on site in Charlottesville and Harrisonburg." ~ Kimberly Swan, The Need Project
