-- Retired Air Force civilian with experience in government contracting as a buyer, Contracting Officer and procurement analyst (policy, government protests, small business protests, government purchase card, career development). -- Last eight years spent as Deputy Director for Air Force Office of Small Business Programs (Pentagon). Met with hundreds of small businesses on many issues regarding how to obtain Air Force contracts, how to be more competitive in the federal marketplace and who to talk to to "open the door" to Air Force procurement opportunities. Established and negotiated small business goals with the Small Business Administration and worked closely with Major Command acquisition officials to make goals. Dollars spent on small business in the AF increased by 100% during my tenure from $5 billion to $10 billion.

AD Greenroof, LLC

Problem: Clean water is the fuel that supports industry around the globe and fresh water is available in only very limited supplies.  In fact, only about 2.5% of all the water on earth is fresh water.  Still, it’s all we have to support humans, other animals, plants and industry around the world.

Challenge:  To conserve our fresh water resources. 

Solution:  One way to meet the challenge is to reduce the volume of contaminated water that enters public lakes and streams as well as treatment systems.  That’s a win-win for utilities, the public in general and the environment. That’s the solution AD Greenroof provides.

My Successes

Projects: AD Greenroof currently has projects in various phases of design and completion across the country.  In the Twin Cities, there are a couple of note:  Providing maintenance oversight for the Target Center and working with the City of St. Paul to calculate the benefits of vegetated roofs; both sizeable projects that have made a big impact on urban water run-off.

The Future:  Ms. Durhman has recently expanded her business to include GREENFORMATION™ which is a maintenance oversight program for building owners and contractors who need to maintain vegetated roofs.
