Glumac is a leader in sustainable design for the built environment. For more than 45 years, their unifying principle has been sustainability and creating systems that optimize energy efficiencies and minimize environmental impact. It’s an ideal that presents a responsibility not just to their clients and their designs, but to the people who occupy the spaces they help create, and the environment in which they reside.
Their mission is to engineer and commission “green buildings that work™.” To that end, they bring an approach
that values simplicity and passive design. This means incorporating energy-efficient and sustainable building technologies into their projects, such as radiant heating and cooling
and rainwater harvesting
, and renewable energy systems
They live their designs. They have worked to achieve LEED Platinum certification in several of their offices, and are currently pursuing Living Building Challenge
Net-Zero Energy for their Los Angeles and Shanghai offices. It’s an effort to show that not only are they wholly confident in the building technologies they utilize for their clients, but that sustainability is more than just a professional achievement for us. At Glumac, it’s a core value.
This philosophy is expressed across their 12 offices located in the Western United States and their 13th in Shanghai with a staff of more than 100 LEED APs and 10 Living Building Ambassadors. Their expertise has led to the design of more than 250-LEED certified and five Living Building Challenge projects. Their services include mechanical, electrical and plumbing
(MEP) consulting engineering, building commissioning
and 3D building modeling
, lighting design
, technology integration
, building energy optimization
, and sustainable design consultancy
. They coordinate these services in-house to efficiently serve their clients and secure the best outcomes for their projects.
