Our 6,600 square foot office space is designed to limit our overall energy consumption while creating an inviting and healthy place for our employees. We selected this location due to its ample public transportation options, abundance of natural daylight, and location within Chicago’s Loop. MEEA also achieved a Gold certification under the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED 2009 for Commercial Interiors green building rating system.
Originally commissioned by "Prince of Electricity," Samuel Insull, the Civic Opera Building was designed by the Chicago firm of Graham, Anderson, Probst & White. Construction was completed in 1928, and the building was designated a City of Chicago Landmark in 1998.
MEEA’s 2011 build-out is the first LEED-certified space in the building and serves as an example for other spaces located in the Civic Opera Building, as well as other historic structures throughout the city.
