Fuss & O'Neil Testimonials
Michael Accorsi, CEE head and professor, agrees. He remarked, "Fuss & O'Neill has actively participated in the educational and research programs of the CEE Department for many years. This close interaction, and the company's reputation for excellence, has benefited our department in substantive ways. As a result, they have a high visibility with our students and many of our graduates have gone on to highly successful careers at Fuss & O'Neill."
Dr. Curtis said, "The environmental and facilities side of the business is heading toward reducing our clients' carbon footprint. LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design Green Building Rating System) certification has emerged as an important goal for many companies, and Fuss & O'Neill can help them reach that goal."
Like UConn, Fuss & O'Neill is a thoroughly modern company that is committed to investing in the future while preserving the past. The same commitment pervades its business values, which Mr. Heidtman explained, "We have a philosophy that ownership should be grown from within. It's an incentive for good people to stay."
