Over the last four years since its groundbreaking, the Bullitt Center has not disappointed.  There are so many wonderful systems in place on this property, but it is worth taking the time to read the various articles and technical specifications.

Seattle's Bullit CenterIf you have been faithful to LEED for years, there may be some push back about learning more about The International Living Institute. Regarding the building's many features, click HERE to learn more. The International Living Future Institute is a hub for visionary programs.

It administers the Living Building Challenge, the built environment's most rigorous and ambitious performance standard. ILF is the parent organization for Cascadia Green Building Council, a chapter of both the United States and Canada Green Building Councils that serves Alaska, British Columbia, Washington and Oregon. It is also the home to Ecotone Publishing, a unique publishing house dedicated to telling the story of the green building movement's pioneering thinkers and practitioners.

I say keep up the good work, test, measure, promote, educate, incorporate into as many new buildings as possible - repeat the process.

Is Net Zero Building the Future of Building (or Wishful Thinking?)

By Ashley Halligan, an analyst at Software Advice

As sustainable building trends continue to emerge, the ambitious goal of net-zero building continues to emerge among industry leaders. Imagining a building that literally produces as much--or more--energy than it consumes almost seems unachievable. However, both major organizations and small businesses are showing us exactly the opposite--with careful planning and responsible energy management practices. Net zero is achievable. But on how wide of a scale?

I recently had the opportunity to discuss the growing trend with a handful of industry professionals--including the Sustainable Manufacturing Manager at McCormick whom provided a promising case study of the transformation of one of their facilities--a 363,000 square foot distribution center which achieved net zero earlier this year.

Organizations are showing us that net zero is widely achievable with two primary steps: first addressing current consumption across a facility, and secondly--retrofitting a building to both reduce and produce energy.
