Bertschi School Science Wing Could Be Washington's First Living Building

 - Feb 11, 2011
The Bertschi School Science Wing is a monumental addition to the remarkably eco-friendly school that puts the building on the path towards obtaining Living Building 2.0 status.

At 1,425 square feet, the Bertschi School Science Wing is a stunning example of how every aspect of a structure's design can lend itself to rigorous sustainability. The design by Restorative Design Collective makes use of everything from rainwater recycling to natural ventilation. Over the next year, the school will keep tabs on the building's eco performance in order to see if it meets the stringent Living Building 2.0 requirements.
