World's Greenest Building Opened Yesterday

April 23, 2013
Bullitt Building Seattle

Located in Seattle, the Bullitt Center opened on Earth Day as the world's greenest building. It features state-of-the-art engineering and sustainable systems.

Timed perfectly with Earth Day, the Bullitt Center opened its doors yesterday as the world's greenest building. Located in Seattle, the six-story, 50,000 square foot office building features a variety of sustainable projects, including composting toilets.

The Bullitt Foundation "hopes that the new center will demonstrate that carbon-neutral office space can be 'commercially viable and aesthetically stunning.'"

Part of the Living Building Challenge, the Bullitt Center features a rain water collection system, aerobic composters, and rooftop photovoltaic panels that produce around 230,000 kilowatt-hours a year.

The mechanical and electrical rooms of the Center will have large glass windows to display the state-of-the-art engineering and innovative systems. The building's indoor air quality, energy consumption, and solar power production will all be closely monitored and updated in real time for visitors.
