Quinnie Li, Associate, LEED AP BD+C: With a degree in architecture/City Planning and experience in real estate and construction, Quinnie has served as project and sustainability manager on multiple high profile projects in both the US and in Asia for Glumac, an MEP engineering consulting company focused in sustainable design. Glumac’s new office space, to be completed in June, will be the first Net-zero Living Building Challenge certified project in Asia on top of LEED v4 Platinum. Through this project as a case study, Quinnie will introduce the advanced building technologies, products, innovative design solutions being implemented, as well as some challenges the project team faces as the team continues to push the envelope for sustainability even further through this project in China.
