Sullivan vs. Farmington's preservation, follow-up

2) Herb Shulhafer has been an architect with Studio Kremer since 2010. (http://www.studiokremer.com/history.htm)

3) Studio Kremer is Sullivan's architect. (http://archinect.com/studiokremer/project/sullivan-university-college-of-pharmacy)
I'm not saying anyone had bad intentions, only that conflicts of interests have permeated this entire process.
