[NEWS] Green means go for Glumac

...
San Francisco-based Glumac is the rare engineering company that has managed to grow in recent years.
The boom in green building has powered the expansion of the 39-year-old sustainable consulting engineering company.
The firm, which focuses on energy-efficient design, grew from $28 million in revenue in 2008 to $34.5 million revenue in 2009, with projections of $39 million for 2010. Glumac has 200 employees and eight offices across California and in Seattle, Portland and Las Vegas. Recently, the company has been doing more work in China, where it is looking into opening a ninth office.
Glumac designs and retrofits mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems for commercial, health care, institutional and technology buildings. The firm's projects include the Transamerica Pyramid and Mark Hopkins Hotel in San Francisco, Stanford University and the National Library of Spain. The firm employs more than 90 LEED-accredited team members and emphasizes energy efficiency, designing plumbing systems requiring less water or heating and cooling systems aided by solar or wind power.
Eco-friendliness has become a defining quality for the company in the past decade, but mechanical engineer Dick Glumac, founder of Glumac, said he has always worked with environmental consciousness. For engineers, he said, it's almost natural law.
"Energy efficiency is a characteristic of engineers," Glumac said.
...
"(Glumac) adopted green technology and took a leadership role when all that came about," said Snellgrove, who still uses the firm on projects like Pier 24.
...
Glumac still comes into the office every day and chairs the company's board of directors.
...
A native Yugoslavian, Glumac's founded defected to North American in 1951 and graduated from the University of Toronto in 1956 with a degree in mechanical engineering. A decade later, Glumac moved to San Francisco, working for a consulting firm for six years and then opening up shop for himself. With $6,000 in personal savings, he leased an office in Embarcadero One, for which he designed the mechanical systems.
Seven years after starting the business, he went into partnership with electrical engineer Cal Webster. In 1977, Webster and Glumac closed the books on their company, Glumac and Webster, and Glumac decided to start a new business that allowed him to bring on several more partners.
"You want people who are working in the firm to own the firm so that the people who are in the really important positions are playing with their own money," said Glumac.

Greenbuild attendees in November will be among the first to preview The Ecological Engineer: Glumac, a new book written by Dave Macaulay and scheduled to be published in 2011 by Ecotone, the green building publishing house led by eco-visionary Jason McLennan.

...
The Ecological Engineer: Glumac is the second of a series of Ecotone books that give a behind-the-scenes look at the most innovative engineers in North America and the practices and principles that push sustainable design to new frontiers - and create green buildings that really work.
...
Readers will learn of the sustainable design features in each of these projects, challenges faced and overcome, and about how Glumac's design efforts focus on creating green buildings that really work.
While Glumac prides itself on being at the forefront of sustainable design, we also are deeply rooted in history. The book will discuss our firm's background and cultural underpinnings set by founder Dick Glumac, other significant projects in our company's history, and our plans to continue doing great engineering into the future.
Glumac is hosting a preview celebration of The Ecological Engineer: Glumac on the evening of Wednesday, November 17th, during Greenbuild.
