Scott Brand: This literally takes team-building to another level

Scott Brand: This literally takes team-building to another level

As a corporate executive, Scott Brand has seen more than his fair share of team-building exercises, meetings, retreats and seminars. Each has its benefits, but unlikely at the level a literal building experience with The Fuller Center for Housing can provide.
