Interested in touring a Net Zero Energy office and meeting other environmentally focused professionals? Come join COTE AIA|LA for a tour of Glumac’s new offices which are on track to be the first Net Zero Energy tenant improvement in Los Angeles and the second LBC TI in the world. Located in the heart of the Financial District in downtown Los Angeles, Glumac’s new office space sets a precedent for ultra-efficient tenant improvement projects. The office relocation is an opportunity for the firm to chart innovative strategies for existing high-rise buildings by pursuing Petal Certification under the Living Building Challenge. By undergoing a unique base building retrofit, the office TI is on track towards Net Zero Energy status and is capturing and reusing waste heat for space heating. 

This is a unique opportunity to learn how innovative thinking can be applied to achieve Net Zero Energy and to learn more about the Living Building Challenge- the built environment's most rigorous performance standard. The Living Building Challenge calls for the creation of building projects at all scales that operate as cleanly, beautifully, and efficiently as nature's architecture. To be certified under the Challenge, projects must meet a series of ambitious performance requirements, including net zero energy, waste and water, over a minimum of 12 months of continuous occupancy.

Following the tour, COTE and Glumac will be sponsoring a mixer with the Los Angeles Living Building Collaborative. Meet people from the Living Building Challenge Collaborative, COTE AIA|LA members, tour attendees and other environmentally focused professionals for some light food, drinks and good conversation.
