Bertschi School

Location: Seattle, WA

There has been quite a buzz in the construction industry about this little school with big plans that sits on a city block in the Capitol Hill area of Seattle, WA.  Bertschi School took on the Living Building Challenge (LBC), which is a strict green building certification program. Only four buildings in the world so far have met this prestigious certification, and the Bertschi School was the fifth.  The school is constructed with solar panels, a living green wall, and many other environmentally friendly considerations that also function as learning tools.

Many schools have the taken on the stringent LEED requirements, although this is the 1st school to obtain beyond that.
