  David Daniels  Co-founder  david@sustainable.to  David Daniels, son of legendary developer John H. Daniels and a principal in the real estate investment company, Daniels Capital Group, saw an opportunity in an important and growing market. Says Daniels “I believe more and more home and business owners want to do the environmentally-correct thing. But overwhelmed by the complexity of the ‘green’ world, as I was, few know where or how to start their ‘green’ project. SUSTAINABLE.TO Architecture + Building is just that place.”
