LIVINGPROOF: The Bullitt Center, Three Years Later
Tuesday, Sep 13, 2016
Certified as the world’s largest commercial Living Building and one of the most energy efficient commercial buildings in the world, the Bullitt Center is a game-changing project that has profound implications for the built environment, the natural environment, the Seattle and Pacific Northwest communities, and the global community.
Open since 2013 and certified as a Living Building in April 2015, the Bullitt Center proves self-sustaining, net positive buildings are a realistic option that are financially achievable, comfortable for tenants and a beautiful addition to the community with essentially no environmental footprint. By sharing lessons learned from the project, including: doing more with less, identifying regulatory hurdles with rainwater use, thermal comfort data, occupant experience antidotes and actual energy use and production, the team hopes to educate and inspire owners and future design teams to create projects that exceed the Bullitt Center’s performance.
