When Cities Get On Board: Navigating the Seattle Living Building Pilot and Bringing It Home
Track: Case Studies

The City of Seattle is incentivizing green building on a new level by offering departures from the Seattle Land Use Code for buildings attempting to meet the Living Building Challenge. Hear from members of the project team, who are working on one of the first projects pursuing Petal Certification (Materials) under the pilot, and from a member of the Seattle Department of Planning and Development which runs the pilot. Learn about challenges of navigating this unique permitting process and brainstorm ways that cities can learn from Seattle. Some knowledge of the permitting process and/or green building incentives is beneficial.
