Seattle 2030 District and Living Building Challenge Discussion
Please join us at the offices of SRG for a presentation by the Seattle 2030 District featuring Susan Wickwire, Executive Director, and Matthew Combe, Program and Operations Director.
The Seattle 2030 District is a groundbreaking high-performance building district that aims to dramatically reduce environmental impacts of facility construction and operations through education and collaboration across every sector of the built environment. It serves as an interdisciplinary public-private collaborative working to develop realistic, measurable, and innovative strategies to assist district property owners, managers, and tenants in meeting the aggressive Architecture 2030 Challenge for Planning goals. There are currently 110 members and 213 buildings in the District.
Recently, the Seattle 2030 District released a new strategic plan to move the membership forward in achieving the goals. The panel will provide an overview of the plan and activities of potential interest to AIA members. One important aspect is public policy and advocacy, and the Seattle 2030 District has made support for the City of Seattle’s Living Building Challenge pilot a priority. The panel will also feature a closer look at projects that are seeking certification under the pilot, which incorporates Seattle 2030 District goals for energy, water and storm water.
Beverages will be provided and please bring your own lunch.
