Top executive: Richard Holzer, principal & Southern Region director
Glumac is an engineering firm that specializes in sustainable design and has developed more than 200 LEED-certified projects for its clients. So when Glumac found itself in search of a new space for its Irvine office, it put its expertise to the test. Glumac’s engineers transformed 8,672 square feet on the first floor of an 11-story building into a beautiful and comfortable space that uses 75 percent less energy than is required by California’s energy code. This LEED Platinum project was recognized as the first Office of the Future by the North American Office of the Future Consortium.
“Our mission is to build innovative and cost-effective green buildings that work,” says Richard Holzer, principal & Southern Region director. “This project is synonymous with our core values. We saw an opportunity to be symbolic of the type of work we’re doing and our own values of sustainability and energy efficiency.”
