As much respect as I have for Ms. Bond as the ongoing volunteer consulting architect, is it not her responsibility to inform her client up front of OSHA regulations pertaining to the work she recommends, rather than reporting them to OSHA after the fact? She always prefaces her criticism by saying she doesn't mean to point fingers, but she hasn't done the City any favors lately.

I would also like to point out that the glass window panes on the street facing side of the building are and have been open, and mostly broken. There have been fallen, jagged fragments of glass on the sidewalk beneath them for at least a month and it hasn't been removed. There is also a danger of more glass falling from the windows onto workers or passersby or otherwise injuring people. It would seem common sense to remove the glass before the hazard injures someone.

Ms. Bond must be a relative newcomer to the area. She just doesn't realize that Larry Leake and his gang can do whatever they want to do without fear of legal retribution.

Being an Architect myself, I understand where Ms. Bond is coming from, but I question if she has been in this area very long and understands how to get things done.

She is another product of the Liberal Green agenda being pushed down everyone's throat. I educate my client's to green building practices and their initial cost versus long term payback. Not all clients want to do it. It may be easier for the clients to save the money on the initial cost and to pay a little more each year for utilities due to cash flow reasons. Just a guess.

I wonder why all these militant green people can't understand that not everything is done the way you think it should be done.

As a fellow professional, I would say that she is correct in her advice, assessment of the situation, and way things should be done, but that does not constitute her right to force her values on someone not willing to do it "her way."

Being a whistle blower is bad for the profession and just bad for business. I am sure people in areas of WNC are just lining up to hire her.......maybe she needs to go back and teach at an Architectural school with the rest of those "save the world" morons'

Last time I checked this society is still based on economic viability. It always will be. Big money and more importantly the good ol' boy network run this region, Ms. Bond you better get on board or move.
