Glumac's mission, to create green buildings that work, requires rapid and iterative analysis of unbuilt projects. Our growing team of analysis experts leverages Building Information Modeling (BIM) to support design-phase decisions without the delay of building new models for every purpose.
But how can software and a design process affect sustainability?
Find out how BIM is empowering us to drive sustainable design, inform our clients, and save them money like never before. We teamed with Autodesk on a new video to describe our culture of sustainable design and innovation.
Glumac is a leader in sustainable design for the built environment. For more than 45 years, our 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 our clients and our designs, but to the people who occupy the spaces we help create, and the environment in which they reside.
We live our designs. We have worked to achieve LEED Platinum certification in several of our offices, and are currently pursuing Living Building Challenge Net-Zero Energy for our Los Angeles and Shanghai offices. It’s an effort to show that not only are we wholly confident in the building technologies we utilize for our 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 our 12 offices located in the Western United States and our 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. Our services include mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) consulting engineering, building commissioning, CFD and 3D building modeling, lighting design, technology integration, building energy optimization, and sustainable design consultancy. We coordinate these services in-house to efficiently serve our clients and secure the best outcomes for their projects. – less
