The Forefront of Performance-Based Design
The Bullitt Center will be the greenest commercial building in the world, firmly planting Seattle at the forefront of the green building movement.
This six-story, 50,000 square-foot building will be located at the intersection of Capitol Hill and the Central District in Seattle, Washington.
The goal of the Bullitt Center is to change the way buildings are designed, built and operated to improve long-term environmental performance and promote broader implementation of energy efficiency, renewable energy and other green building technologies in the Northwest.
The building is seeking to meet the ambitious goals of the Living Building Challenge, the world’s most strenuous benchmark for sustainability.
For example, a solar array will generate as much electricity as the building uses and rain will supply as much water, with all wastewater treated onsite.
By creating a place where every worker has access to fresh air and daylight, the Bullitt Center will create a healthy, human environment that is more pleasant and more productive than most commercial buildings.
