by Doug Fountain and JoEllyn Fountain
With a heavy use of SCUP resource materials, SCUPers Doug and JoEllyn Fountain have written the book they wish someone could have handed them when they began working for eight years with a rapidly growing university in Uganda. “While North American universities are developing LEED certified buildings, we were trying to pave roads and get stable electricity. We looked long and hard for materials and advisors who could help us with basic issues.”
