A special New Member only event for members who have joined the Chapter within the last six months!

The U.S. Green Building Council – Missouri Gateway Chapter welcomes you to come socialize and get acquainted with USGBC-Missouri Gateway!  Chapter officers, past and present, will be on hand to share the chapter’s history, highlight member benefits & opportunities, and answer questions.  Attendees will have the opportunity to meet fellow new members while enjoying breakfast beverages and snacks.

After new members have learned about the Chapter, they will tour Lawrence Group’s offices and learn about the building’s many sustainable features. The Lawrence Group is located in the Security Building, an 11-story office building that was built in 1892.The 128,000 square foot Romanesque-style, masonry structure at the corner of Fourth and Locust in downtown St. Louis was once a part of the city’s bustling financial hub and formerly housed the Noonday Club from 1893 to 1964.

In 2003, Lawrence Group purchased the building and began an extensive renovation that led to the achievement of LEED Silver certification. Upgrades included new HVAC, elevators to comply with ADA standards, installation of a new electrical distribution system and new plumbing with low-flow fixtures and motion sensors on the faucets. Additionally, the renovation includes numerous energy-saving design elements, such as low-emittance glass windows and a ”cool” roof coating helped rejuvenate the building and attract tenants. Positive factors in the renovation include the U-shaped design that allowed for natural light and fresh air to enter office spaces in an era prior to mechanically controlled climates, the building’s original design and the downtown location with nearby public transit.
