Full Description

Stone 34, a 130,000 ft2 (12,077 m2) mixed-use commercial office building, exceeded the aggressive performance standards of Seattle's Deep Green Pilot.The requirements of this program include achieving at least 60% of the "Living Building Challenge" imperatives, a 75% reduction in total annualenergy usage compared to 2003 CBECS data, a 75% reduction in potable water usage, and re-use of at least 50% of storm water that falls on the site.The Deep Green Pilot requires validated performance after 12 continuous months of operation, and both the design team and ownership team facedfinancial penalties if the building failed to meet the program targets. This paper will explain the "bookend approach" that the design and ownership teamused to ensure that the occupied building met the performance requirements.
