Greenest Office Building in the World coming to Seattle
A 50,000 square foot space is headed for construction in Seattle and promises to be the world’s most environmentally conscious office. The Bullitt Center will feature “100% onsite energy use from solar panels, all water provided by harvested rainwater, natural lighting, indoor composting toilets, a system of geothermal wells for heating, and a wood-framed structure (made out of FSC-certified wood)”.
The success of the ambitious design relies on several Seattle-specific features (excessive rainfall, cheap energy, etc) so unfortunately it cannot be easily recreated elsewhere. However, supporters are hoping the eco-friendly project inspires like-minded efforts around the globe.
