Richard Strong (Center for Sustainable Building Research) praises the University's selection of LHB as the design service provider for the Green Prairie Community project on the Morris campus: "LHB is known for sustainable architecture and is an early founder of Minnesota’s green building movement." Strong is assisting the project's planning team also told Riley, "LHB infuses sustainable building principles into all their work. Their design team truly understands building green from a very deep and integrated approach. They are perfect to partner with the University of Minnesota, Morris in its excellent work of campus sustainability and climate neutrality. I am excited about Morris becoming the very first campus to sustainably attain carbon free living and showing Minnesota the abundance that comes with that decision."
