Innovative engineering comes from broad thinking, informed opinions and exceptional collaboration with the client, architect and contractor. The engineers at Glumac exemplify this skill set. --Ken Lewis, President, AC Martin Partners Inc.
Fifteen years ago, when we first started developing highly sustainable buildings along with our key industry partners such as Glumac, we thought it was great to develop LEED Silver or Gold buildings. Then we thought it was exciting to develop LEED Platinum buildings. However, today with the help of Glumac, we are totally focused on Net Zero, distributed infrastructure, Eco Districts and how to enable our building occupants to truly live, work and learn in a much more sustainable fashion. Through our joint efforts to continuously innovate and explore the latest options, I am confident that we will attain our sustainability initiatives faster than we ever dreamed. --Mark Edlen, CEO, Gerding Edlen
Glumac is an impressive company of talented engineers who constantly work on innovative projects with passion and intelligence. I have always appreciated their approach to finding the best high-performance solutions that simply work well. This book explores many key ideas, principles and projects that can teach engineers and architects alike. --Jason F. McLennan, CEO, International Living Future Institute
