I recently had the opportunity to collaborate with Weber Thompson on a presentation for AIA Seattle’s 2016 Sustainability Slam. There are a number of exciting and innovative projects taking place in and around Seattle that we were able to learn more about firsthand.
I presented with Aaron Swain of WT on 1300 Pike, a six story multifamily project in Capitol Hill that targeting PHIUS Passive House certification. We discussed the specific design strategies to drive energy efficiency, and how Passive House relates to the overall sustainability goals of the project. There was a lot to talk about in a 7 minute presentation, but we managed to squeeze it in!
