The Green Building Certification Institute announced this week that the Glumac Portland office has been awarded Platinum certification under LEED CI. Since last year, Glumac Portland has been happily inhabiting a 15,150 sf, office space in the Standard Insurance Center in the heart of downtown Portland. The office is the result of a deep energy retrofit of the 16th floor of this 27-story, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill building, originally opened in 1968.
As important as any certification, this is a Green Building That Works. Glumac staff have been watching the lighting, HVAC and energy load meters closely, and report that the Glumac space has been meeting or exceeding predicted energy savings since the space was commissioned.
