Walk the Stairs of Sustainablity!

Date posted: November 12, 2013

Walk the stairs of sustainability with Bellevue College as we embark on a tour of the Bullitt Center, the world’s greenest commercial building!  Space is limited to 20 guests, so please reserve your space early.  We will be carpooling from BC and participants will need to sign a liability waiver.

The Bullitt Center is a part of the Living Building Challenge that looks not only at green design, but also at form, function, and environmental impact on the health of the environment and health of the community.  The architecture is designed to mimic nature’s exquisiteness through form and function and works with the built environment rather than against it.  The whole building takes advantage of sunlight, rain, and wind through the solar panel roof, to the rain water basin.

As Bellevue College thinks about constructing new buildings we hope that by visiting the Bullitt Center it will give birth to new inspiration and enthusiasm for buildings that are not just about form and function, but also mimic nature’s beauty and genius.

We will be carpooling from Bellevue College K-100 building on Friday November 15th and will depart at 10:30a.m. and arrive back at BC at 1:00p.m.

To reserve a spot please sign up by November 12th in Student Programs (Room C-212) or contact Bellevue College’s Sustainability Outreach and Advocacy Coordinator (Sophia Trinh) at: sophia.trinh@bellevuecollege.edu
