Mr. Greene has been engaged in the practice of architecture for 55 years, the past 47 as a firm principal.  The experience gained over that period has been very broad, encompassing most major building types – commercial, industrial, educational, public and private institutional, housing – and project sizes ranging from small individual buildings to large multi-story, mixed-use structures.  In recent years a major involvement with historic rehabilitation and renovation of existing structures has emerged as a significant element of his involvement in the firm’s work.
