What if we could help save the planet and money at the same time? The good news is we can. In fact, the bottom line is an improved planet, and well… an improved bottom line. The ninth annual Higher Education Sustainability Conference, taking place this week at Los Angeles Trade Technical College (LACCD), is exploring the ways in which we can implement social, environmental, and economic sustainability on California higher education campuses statewide, while preparing students for green collar jobs. HMC is proud to be a Community Sponsor of the 3-day conference. Visit our booth to learn more about how green design can change the world.

We think so. And so does Architectural Record magazine, who is having a Cocktail Napkin Sketch Contest to prove that sketching still matters. HMC’s Ontario and Los Angeles offices participated in the spontaneous sketching contest. Each sketcher entered up to 6 sketches that explain or workout a concept, which will be judged by Architectural Record editors. Winners will be published in the August 2010 issue.

It’s official. The 14,000 square foot Frontier Project for the Cucamonga Valley Water District, designed by HMC Architects, has achieved LEED Platinum certification. Since this particular project was designed to educate visitors about the latest methods and technologies in sustainable building practices and resource conservation, this achievement was fundamentally important.

Each spring, HMC Architects awards two travel fellowships to meritorious employees to encourage the exploration of other cultures and to strengthen the creative ethos of the firm. Each entrant submits a destination and describes how the experience would contribute to their personal vision and professional growth. This year, the winners of the competition are Yunnan Allen, LEED® AP and Danny Schapker. Each received a $4,000 travel stipend and an additional week of paid time off to complete their proposed journey.
