BULLITT CENTER

Client: Bullitt Foundation
Architect: Miller Hull Partnership
Engineer: PAE  Engineers
General Contractor: Schuchart
Designed: 2011 - 2013

In 2011, design and construction of the Bullitt Center began in response to the Bullitt Foundation’s decision to create a living example of what’s possible for sustainable building practices in urban environments. Under the Bullitt Foundation’s leadership, the University of Washington’s Integrated Design Lab (UW IDL) worked with an integrated design team of contractors and consultants to construct a net-zero energy building that met the rigorous, performance-based standards set out by the Living Building Challenge. The UW IDL’s role in designing and developing the Bullitt Center included providing daylighting analysis and serving as advisory members on the AEC (architect/engineer/contractor) team throughout construction.

As a result of the Bullitt Foundation’s vision and the design team’s adherence to integrated design principles, the 6-story, 51,000 sq. foot Bullitt Center became the first commercial office in the world to be certified as a living building. The Bullitt Center has been net-positive energy during its past two years of operation, performing better than predicted since it opened in 2013. The UW IDL has occupied the Bullitt Center as office tenants since its completion, providing ongoing monitoring and evaluation of the building’s energy performance, analysis of occupant behavior, and education and outreach through building tours.

UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON MEDICAL CENTER

Client: University of Washington Medical Center
Architect: NBBJ
Engineer: Notkin
Designed: 2012-2015

The University of Washington Medical Center Phase II Expansion involves the build out of three new patient care floors, half a floor of new imaging, operating suites, and mechanical spaces to service these new functions.  The Phase II Expansion project also involves a deep renovation of existing clinical spaces that will provide state-of-the-art facilities and improvements to the existing hospital. Building on the Phase I design, the UW IDL provided technical consulting to the project team starting early in design with energy goal setting, strategy selection, energy modeling, implementation evaluation, and utility incentive support services.  Energy performance was a critical theme for the UW and design team, including NBBJ and Notkin Engineering.  The final design incorporates Targeting 100! concepts in several of its core strategies.
