    In honor of Lake Flato’s thirtieth anniversary, the Thirty Projects x Thirty Years series has been developed to explore and celebrate the firm’s history and culture of design. Published weekly, the series will highlight one project per year, starting in 1984 and ending in 2014. The projects that have been selected will give you a snapshot of the firm’s evolution as well as provide a fun and insightful collection on then and now, and ultimately, who we are today.

    Each year, firms that have signed up for the AIA 2030 Commitment report their progress toward the 2030 Challenge in their design work.  Lake|Flato is proud to have participated and reported in the AIA 2030 Commitment program since its inception.  The AIA produces an annual report summarizing the results of everyone’s reports.  The 2013 report has just been released and is rife with interesting data on our industry’s progress toward carbon neutrality.

    The Josey Pavilion, our first project seeking Living Building Challenge certification, began its operational phase on October 1st and things are looking good. During the month of October, Josey Consumed 139 kWh of electricity and generated 358 kWh. This is net positive usage of 219 kWh, meaning that 219 kWh of energy were sent back into the grid. Josey generated about 25% less energy than predicted, which is a little disconcerting but it also used less than half the energy that we had anticipated. A few more months like this and we should be in the clear.   Click to Read More
